Learn more about issues facing the "bully breeds" of dogs at the 2010 Humane Education Seminar hosted by the University of Illinois Department of Animal Sciences on Saturday, Feb. 20, at the U of I ACES Library.
Four national leaders will address issues surrounding today's most prolific breed types, which include the American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier and Staffordshire Bull Terrier as well as other breeds and mixes. Speakers will discuss relevant legislation, approaches for animal care and control officials, and overall guidance on building safe and humane communities.
Veterinarians and certified veterinary technicians can obtain up to 4.0 CEUs for attending the seminar.
In addition, participants will have the opportunity to review innovative humane education programs in a poster session in which five presenters will be selected to showcase programs designed to help communities better understand and address issues related to bully breeds.
The Humane Education Seminar is sponsored by University of Illinois Extension, the Champaign County Humane Society and Blarney Stone Bassets.
