The University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine presents its second annual behavior seminar for veterinarians, trainers and shelter professionals

Keeping the Peace with Fido and Fluffy

New Pets, ReactivePets, and Multiple-Pet Issues

August 3 - 4, 2007

This two-day seminar includes 12 contact hours (veterinarian, certified veterinary technician, IAABC and CPDT continuing education credit approved) of teaching along with an exhibition room to provide information and educational materials forall attendees.

The seminar will focus on the behavior and training challenges of introducing new pets into homes, working with dogs and cats in multiple pet households, and helping to prevent and solve behavior problems in reactive companion animals. Our first seminar successfully brought together veterinarians, trainers and shelter professionals in their common interests in providing quality behavior and training support to pet owners. We hope to once again reach these diverse audiences as our topics for the 2007 seminar were developed from the suggestions of attendees at the 2006 event. In addition to two full days of lectures by nationally-recognized experts, this year's seminar will include noon-time Best Practices sessions during which attendees will have the opportunity to share experiences and approaches to selected training techniques, management practices and behavior modification programs that they use in their own veterinary practice, training school or shelter.
