The purpose of the Forum is to provide an opportunity for behaviorists, trainers, and other animal professionals from different disciplines and backgrounds to meet and focus on contemporary developments in companion animal behavior.

The Forum is a place to share information, advance  knowledge, develop productive professional relationships, and encourage future communication.

 IFAAB began in 1997 with a handful of behavior professionals including  Certified Applied Animal Behaviorists, Veterinary Behaviorists, Certified Dog Pet Dog Trainers and animal shelter professionals.  Since then, the variety of companion animal behavior professionals has expanded.  IFAAB is unique in its format, requiring all attendees to deliver a presentation, and structured to allow in depth and collegial discussion.  Friendly differences of opinion among attendees are encouraged because that’s how we all learn from each other.  

Due to circumstances beyond our control, there will be no IFAAB in 2020
Plans for 2021 and beyond are unknown at this time.
