Day 2: Sunday 17 September iCatCare/APBC Day: Problem behaviour – it’s a team approach
International Cat Care, working with the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors, has planned a day with a difference!
Instead of the usual conference format, a problem behaviour case (fictional but based on true events) will be presented shown through the eyes of the people involved in the management of the case.
The aim is to show how all the different professions are involved in a case, how decisions they make can influence the case (for better or worse) and how they need to work together to get the best outcome for the owner and the cat.
Sarah Ellis from iCatCare will compere the day and there will be input from experts and discussion during the day.
The venue The conference is being held at the new Birmingham Conference and Events Centre which is just outside New Street Station in Birmingham, UK.
Cost You can attend either day or book for the whole weekend for just £140 including refreshments and buffet lunches, CPD certificate of attendance and access to online downloadable proceedings (Saturday only).
