Fear Free Kittens and Puppies Course with RACE-approved CE

Fear Free Kittens and Puppies Course

Setting Up Cats & Dogs for a Fear Free Lifetime by Employing Proactive, Protective, and Preventive Care Strategies Early in Life

Undesirable behavior is the number one reason cats and dogs are relinquished. Just like with infectious disease, prevention is much easier than treatment; preventing miscommunication and problem behaviors, is much easier than treating them once a habit has formed. Worth a total of 10 hours of RACE-approved CE, this course will teach you how to create a Fear Free℠ foundation with kittens and puppies coming to your facility as well as how to assist your clients with creating a Fear Free environment at home.

Cats and dogs spend a small amount of time at the veterinary hospital. What happens at home will impact how they respond to our care in the hospital. This course will empower you with the knowledge necessary to help you educate and assist your clients with employing proactive, protective, and preventive care strategies that will last throughout the pet’s life. Help your patients become Fear Free pets for a lifetime!


Fear Free Certification Course Program for veterinarians and dog trainers.

the Fear Free Certification Program

As veterinary professionals, we know that visits to our hospitals are declining. Our goal: Turn this trend around by addressing the primary reason behind it—fear and anxiety created by the veterinary visit. Veterinarians, technicians, and other veterinary professionals are the true pet health experts—and we’d like to keep it that way. Fear Free visits mean veterinary teams see their patients more often, and pet owners seek advice from a trusted source. Fear Free veterinary visits eliminate fear, anxiety, and stress, and create an experience that is better and safer for all involved, including pets, owners, and veterinary health care teams.

As a certified Fear Free practitioner, you will:

  • Reduce or remove anxiety triggers that can cause pets to become fearful at home, in transport, and at the veterinary hospital
  • Help owners deliver calm pets to your hospital
  • Enhance the quality of medicine in your practice
  • Increase compliance
  • Improve safety for the veterinary team
