When their dogs choose what to chase it can compromise owners financially, cause the target severe injury or even death, and threaten the life of the dog. A good trainer or behaviour counsellor needs to be able to address inappropriate predatory chase behaviour swiftly and effectively.

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. Since individuals must become Certificated Clinical Animal Behaviourists under the ASAB (Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour) Certification Scheme, we highly recommend that you check ASAB's academic requirements 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.  The APBC does not guarantee that any courses listed below will meet the requirements of the APBC or CCAB application process which are detailed here.  

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
