Training Courses in Companion Animal Behaviour

dogThe APBC firmly believes that individuals, who wish to embark on a career in pet behaviour therapy, should aim to obtain the highest academic qualifications available to them, and as such, a degree is the minimum level acceptable for APBC membership. We would also strongly suggest taking the following link to learn about the requirements for the ASAB (Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour) Certification Scheme before choosing your course.  You can also search courses, browse careers and view case studies in animal-related areas at Vetnet's "Cave" resource.

Below are some courses that may be of interest (list current late 2014).  

If you are from an academic institution and run a degree course in animal behaviour we will be pleased to list your course. Please email info [at] apbc [dot] org [dot] uk
