www.apbc.org.uk The APBC is an international network of experienced and qualified pet behaviour counsellors, who, on referral from veterinary surgeons, treat behaviour problems in dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, horses and other pets. It takes time to establish the cause and develop treatment plans that are suitable for the owner's circumstances, and APBC members are able to offer the time and expertise necessary to achieve these objectives. The APBC also runs seminars and workshops, both for its members and others interested in the field of pet behaviour therapy and dog training, and also sells books, videos and other products related to the subject.
