Welcome to the Working Animals Division

The objective of the Division is to support handlers and trainers working with service, therapy and other working animals in preventing and ameliorating behavioral issues. Our experienced division members bring special skills and sensitivity to the issues specific to this group of animals. We are also delighted to offer the Working Animals Library, a growing collection of dozens of instructional handouts, videos, articles, and presentations, available to members in their user accounts. We are not currently accepting applications for certification. For more information please contact the Division Chair at WorkingAnimalsChair@iaabc.org.
