Behaviour is influenced by inherited and environmental effects as well as learning. These influences are present throughout every animal’s lifetime, starting from before birth and extending into old age. Focussing on dogs, cats and rabbits, this talk will explore how these factors can affect behaviour at all the different stages of an animal’s life.


Undertanding this can help breeders to produce animals best suited to be pets or for other roles, and can also help owners choose individual animals that are most suited to being pets. It can also help pet owners, veterinary staff, dog trainers and other pet professionals to ensure animals have the opportunity to reach their full behavioural potential and to identify times where extra care may need to be taken in order to reduce the risks of developing behaviour problems. This talk will also discuss how we can meet the changing physical and behavioural needs of elderly animals.


Suitable for pet owners, professionals  and students alike.
