By completing this course, you’ll take home useful, practical knowledge and straightforward tools you can use in practice to help patients with the more common behavioral problems. Get in-depth coverage of important principles and behavior topics pertinent to our companion animals. See these principles in action during Hands-on Laboratories. Through case-based learning — challenging problems from your experience and faculty combined — you’ll put these principles to use in diagnosis and treatment plans. We’ll also discuss science-based recent and pertinent behavior articles to keep you up to date on the latest discoveries in this ever-changing and growing field.

Learning Objectives:

  • Develop a working knowledge of behavior basics and simple principles you can apply to your own cases in practice
  • Become comfortable with diagnosing problems and formulating and implementing appropriate treatment options
  • Understand various scientific sources that present behavioral case and research information so you can access them as needed
  • Discover ways to discern “good” science from “not so good” behavioral science
  • Master the ways you can apply resource information into your own practice
