About the course

This 1-day CPD looks at ways you can make your practice more canine 'Behaviour Aware'

Understanding canine body language is an important skill for anyone working in the veterinary profession.

It is vital that we recognise the signs of fear and anxiety and know the appropriate measures that we can take to prevent the behaviour from escalating.

Ensuring our canine patients arrive in the consult room relaxed and calm can really make a difference to the level of care we can provide for them. It also makes for a happy client and a happier team.

By treating each dog as an individual, we can learn how to adapt the waiting room, our handling techniques and our consult rooms. Thus reducing fear and anxiety for our canine patients.
