The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior (AVSAB) is a membership-only organization of veterinarians and persons holding a PhD in animal behavior or a related field. It does not confer upon its members any qualifications or presuppose a level of expertise in the field of animal behavior. Behavior consultants are members of AVSAB listed as a courtesy to help pet owners find professionals interested in dealing with behavior problems.
