March 4, 2010

The Colorado State University Veterinary student Animal Behavior Club is hosting a one-day seminar for pet lovers, veterinary students, and veterinary staff in the community.

Door prizes, lunch provided

The CSU Animal Behavior Club is a student chapter of the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior. The club offers behavior and training information for a variety of species including:

  • dogs
  • cats
  • horses
  • small ruminants
  • wildlife
  • pet birds
  • small mammals

Behavior problems leading cause of animal relinquishments to shelters

Through community speaking engagements, information on the club website, and the sale of training supplies and books, the Behavior Club also provides the community with opportunities to learn about the behavior of their pets. Problem behavior in pets is a leading cause of relinquishment of animals to shelters.

Free, but donations appreciated

“Ain’t Misbehavin’ – Creating the (Almost) Impeccable Pet” is free, though donations to the Behavior Club are appreciated. Donations are used to help educate future veterinarians about the behavior of their patients through lectures and hands-on experiences.

Pre-registration suggested

Pre-registration via the club’s website is suggested. For more information about the Behavior Club or the upcoming behavior seminar, or to pre-register for the event, visit www.cvmbs.colostate.edu/vetbehaviorclub.
