Understanding puppies is an important factor in the human-animal bond and a key ingredient to a life-long happy and healthy relationship with our dogs. In this presentation, behaviour veterinarian Dr Elle Parker will be covering the basics of psychology and behavioural development in puppies with a focus on recognising normal versus abnormal behaviour. Elle will discuss the most important concepts to relay to puppy owners and provide tips about recommended puppy class content, including how to run a gold-standard puppy class. Boehringer Ingelheim, Hills and Crampton Consulting Group will also present on available resources to help you when conducting puppy consults and puppy preschool.
This webinar counts for one (1) CE point.
BSc BVMS (Hons) MANZCVS (Behaviour)
Having always been fascinated by both psychology and animal behaviour, I naturally found my calling in the blossoming field of veterinary behaviour. I learned of the confronting reality of how commonly behaviour issues devastate the lives of pets and their families. I was struck by how fundamentally important but under-recognised this area of veterinary medicine was. So I launched into it and never looked back. As a vet, I have a special interest and additional postgraduate qualifications in behaviour. I graduated from Murdoch University in WA in 2010. I then undertook further study through the University of Sydney and gained membership through examination to the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in 2016. I am so grateful that I have been able to combine my academic and real-world passions to enthusiastically follow a unique, challenging and rewarding career path. I love feeling like I have made a difference at the end of each day. My ultimate mission is to change and save lives.
