Saturday 5th November 2016

Price: £40, £35 LAA members  

When: Arrive 8.45 for a 9am start, finish around  5 pm.

Where: Wotton Village Hall, between Guildford and Dorking on the A25, behind the Wotton Hatch pub, Surrey (easy access of the M25, M3 and relatively near a railway station).

Why you can’t just train good behaviour: An overview of the multifactorial nature of behaviour, with particular reference to the influence of physical health on behaviour problems in dogs and cats.


First Helen will cover aspects of behaviour such as temperament, mood, emotions and motivations and then spend some time looking at medical influences on behaviour with plenty of case studies along the way.


This is a rare opportunity for a great CPD event for professionals and an interesting day out for anyone wanting to learn more about their dog or cat. Most events are focused on one species but this will cover dog and cat behaviour.
