Past Attendee Feedback 

I had a great time! Looking forward to attending again some point in the future. – 2023 Attendee

Great conference overall. Nice new location – 2023 Attendee

I really enjoyed Chicago more than Las Vegas. Everything was in walking distance for the most part. More places to eat. Loved the restaurant in the hotel. It was so much easier to get around or even relax. I also think the venue was great. It was large enough for all the attendees. It was closer together. Last year, I felt awkward turning back and forth to try to watch the speaker and the screens. I also enjoyed the topics more this year. Overall, I enjoyed last year and this year and cannot wait until next year! – 2023 Attendee

The CABC is my favorite conference of the year! I love that there is a single track and we all get to learn everything. I can’t wait for the event next year in Chicago! – 2022 Attendee

Thank you for putting this conference together. It is refreshing to be surrounded by others who believe in the importance of expanding their knowledge of animal behavior. This conference reinforces my commitment to provide more compassionate care for my patients. – 2022 Attendee

This was my first CABC conference and I really enjoyed it. Got new ideas and some confirmation that I am on the right track. – 2022 Attendee

I will hopefully be attending again! I enjoyed this conference very much. Great job. – 2022 Attendee
This was great conference and was a wonderful experience for me as a person and a dog trainer. Not only did I come back home refreshed and energized. I felt more connected and got what I was looking for, which was a better understanding of those in the Vet field and expanded my knowledge of animal behavior. I really appreciated the last day covering us as people navigating a world that is not just about the animal and results. Colleen Pelar clearly had a strong impact and it was refreshing to take a step back and really reflect on ourselves and the care we need for us to help others. – 2022 Attendee

The 2019 conference received excellent reviews.  It was one of a kind!

The CABC is an event like no other. It includes trainers, techs, and vets in each and every session. This creates a camaraderie among those of us fascinated by animal behavior no matter which level we practice on.  Each year there are two days of scientific sessions focused on a particular issue: geriatric pets, for example, or adolescent animals. Presentations explore the breadth and depth of information available on each issue, with the main emphasis on clinical management of our cases.  The conference is always well attended, well managed, and loads of fun. I always bring home new ideas for my patients, and that reenergizes my practice.
