How To Write a Behavior Report

Have you ever been asked to evaluate a dog (or other pet)? What do you discuss in your written evaluation?  Do you use written reports to follow up with veterinarians and others who have referred people to you for help with their pet’s behavior? What is included in your written report to pet owners?

WHAT!! – You say you aren’t creating written reports?

You are missing out on an opportunity to

  • grow your business,
  • educate your clients and other pet professionals,
  • avoid misunderstandings and miscommunications, and
  • to cover your you-know-what!

Your written reports can help you establish your credibility if they are well written, easily understandable and include conclusions that can be substantiated. Your reports can also undermine your credibility if they are rambling, mis-represent “facts” that are really speculations, include interpretations that are difficult to justify, and over-step your professional boundaries.

In this 2 session tele-webcast you’ll discover

  • The purpose of a written report
  • What should be included in your report, depending on its purpose
  • What mistakes to avoid when writing your reports

And you’ll have the benefit of hearing different perspectives from your THREE instructors, all of whom are experienced behaviorists, on their individual preferences for how reports are written and used.

You’ll also receive an outline or “template” to get you started with your own reports, a chance to have reports you’ve written critiqued and evaluated (anonymously – author’s name won’t be shared with class) and review samples of reports your instructors have used for years to build their businesses.

Here’s what previous students had to say:

"This was my first one and I will definitely take more. The quality of instruction, the amount of class notes and samples, the scientific foundation, the professional experience, the "push" to bring dog training to a higher level are a combination not easily found elsewhere all for a very affordable price and NO travel :>)"

"This was the most practically valuable course I have taken and I’m excited to put it to use."
