Exploring This Job

Prepare for a career as an animal behaviorist by taking as many biology and psychology classes as possible. Hands on experience working with animals is a must. Look for volunteer positions or part time jobs in shelters, sanctuaries, zoos, and vet offices. These will give you opportunities to work with animals and observe interactions between animals and people. Internships with veterinarians or dog trainers might also be helpful as will internships with other animal behaviorists.
