PRACTICAL BEHAVIORAL INFORMATION FOR THE VETERINARY PRACTITIONER This intensive one-day seminar comprises just about all that veterinary practitioners need to know about dog behavior and training. The scope of the information is certainly not huge but it’s hugely time-sensitive and critically important for dogs’ and owners’ (and practitioners’) mental health and quality of life. Animal behavior has a crucial impact on the veterinary profession. Mannerly, well-behaved and good-natured dogs allow the practitioner to get on with their job. Behavior, temperament and training problems waste time, lose money and generally make life unpleasant for the practitioner, owner and animal client. Temperament problems consume time (fearful and aggressive dogs take longer to examine and treat), behavior problems are the #1 terminal illness of pet dogs, and ineffectively dealing with behavior, temperament and training issues in the course of everyday practice is the biggest time-waster of all. It is in the very best interests of small and large animal veterinarians to ensure that their clients have appropriate information at the appropriate time (prior to crucially important imprinting or socialization periods) so that owners may easily and effectively prevent the development of otherwise predictable behavior, temperament and training problems and especially, teach animals to enjoy being handled as adults. This seminar will provide effective means for veterinarians to disseminate necessary time-sensitive educational materials to their clients. Temperament Problems The most important qualities in all domestic animals are: 1. They enjoy being handled by people (whether hugged and petted, or restrained and examined) and 2. They have been taught stellar bite inhibition, so that if ever provoked to bite, the teeth would never puncture the skin. Veterinary practitioners cannot do their job unless the patient is still. Dogs with temperament problems take much longer
