Spotlight on Pamela Reid

“For some animals, the reality is that after a lifetime of neglect and abuse, the rescue is just the beginning of their journey to recovery”

Dr. Pamela Reid, PhD, CAAB, Vice President, ASPCA Anti-Cruelty Behavior Team            
A Certified Applied Animal Behaviourist, Pam spent many years running her successful referral practice, and is now Vice President of the ASPCA’s Anti-Cruelty Behaviour Team (ACBT) and Anti-Cruelty Behavioural Rehabilitation Centre. She lectures on animal behaviour and training worldwide, and has authored and contributed to a number of publications. PACT students and members will be familiar with Pam’s excellent book, Excel-erated Learning, which she was originally inspired to write for her staff after identifying a lack of literature on learning theory for dog trainers.

At the ASPCA, Pam has played an integral role in many high-profile operations to ensure the best outcome for victims of animal cruelty, overseeing the behavioural assessment, rehabilitation and proper placement of dogs seized in dogfighting, puppy mill and hoarding cases. She has also been involved in the ACBT response to numerous natural disasters, including Hurricane Sandy, and evaluated and cared for thousands of displaced animals before they were successfully reunited with their owners or adopted into loving homes.

Covering a breadth of topics from the evaluation of rescue dogs to ongoing support for rehomed dogs and their families, Pam’s upcoming seminar is a rare opportunity for those in the UK to benefit from her extensive knowledge on canine rehabilitation. It is a must for dog trainers, behaviourists and shelter staff, as well as anyone with a keen interest in the topic.

Following her presentation at the ACTION Conference, we are delighted to be hosting Dr Pam Reid for a two-day seminar (23 and 24 May 2020), covering all aspects of canine rescue and rehabilitation.
