A working knowledge of applied animal behavior is highly advantageous for veterinary practitioners. Not only can simple training procedures make practice easier, quicker and more enjoyable but proactive behavior and training advice can substantially improve the quality of life for dogs, their owners and clinic personnel. New puppy owners must know how to raise and train a puppy. To facilitate new puppy owner education, the SIRIUS® Veterinary Behavior Program provides practitioners with free, handy, comprehensive educational materials to distribute to clients.
