    IAABC Foundation Animal Behavior Conference 2024

    Let's summit the peak of our animal welfare and behavior professional excellence together at the IAABC Foundation's' Animal Behavior Conference this year in Asheville, North Carolina and via livestream May 1st-3rd. The IAABC Foundation, sister organization to the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (the IAABC), is hosting its annual conference at the DoubleTree by Hilton Asheville – Biltmore and you're invited!

    Explore, discover and learn from experts in dog, cat behavior, horse behavior, and more. You'll have the opportunity to attend over 30 educational sessions, covering topics such as:

    • Working with the human-animal, understanding social cognition and behavior of people and the importance of building community

    • Interdisciplinary and innovative approaches to emotional regulation, understanding disorders

    • Animal ethics, social constructions and defining "good training"

    • And much more!

    In addition to the educational sessions, the IAABC Foundation is hosting 3 unique off-site events to kick off the conference.  Choose to visit the  first-of-its-kind facility, ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center (BRC), enter the fascinating world of parrot behavior at Phoenix Landing or learn from a panel of renowned equine educators.  Last year's attendees benefited from these amazing learning and networking opportunities. Now you can, too!


    A scholarship is available to marginalized communities.  IAABC members also receive a discount, so if you're not already a member, now is the perfect time to join!


    Take advantage of this valuable opportunity to learn from top professionals and network with peers who share your interests. Reserve your spot at the IAABC Foundation Conference in Asheville now. We hope to see you there!

    We are here to help!
