Get the Certification. Gain the Advantage.

Brought to you by HABRI and the NAVC.

Getting Certified

There’s no question that today’s pet owners are very different from pet owners just a few years ago ­­– just look at the explosion in pet products and services being marketed to pet owners these days, everything from doggy daycare and pet strollers to video games for cats and TV stations for dogs. The next thing pet parents are going to be looking for is a veterinarian that can prove they understand and support the relationship they have with their pet.

Those that complete the course will earn an official Human-Animal Bond Certification from HABRI and the NAVC.

To earn the Human-Animal Bond Certification, candidates:

  • Must be a veterinarian, technician/nurse, practice manager, hospital employee with a minimum of two years experience
  • Complete the work-at-your-own pace course
  • Pass the Human-Animal Bond Certification exam

Certified Human-Animal Bond practitioners will receive:

  • 22 hours of RACE approved CE
  • A certificate to display in your practice and online
  • Exclusive Human-Animal Bond Certification marketing tools and materials to help you attract new pet owners to your practice via social media and online
