Polite Pets Month
An initiative of the Australian Veterinary Behaviour Interest Group (AVBIG), Polite Pets Month is an annual campaign to raise awareness among pet owners about pet training and pet behaviour issues and encourage owners to ask their veterinarian for advice about their pet's behaviour.
The 2013 theme, 'Why does my pet do that?', addresses common behaviour questions asked of vets, such as ‘why does my dog bark?’ and ‘why won’t my cat use the litter tray?’
Animal lovers of all types can access information here about how to make sure we have courteous cats, delightful dogs and beautifully behaved birds as our much-loved companions. It's your one-stop shop for reliable, accurate and helpful advice from veterinary experts in the field.
There are also Polite Pets Month activities designed especially for vets, vet nurses and animal welfare and dog training organisations.
