When an animal is reinforced for displaying a certain behavior, the animal is likely to repeat that behavior.

One can also research it through reading books written on the subject of animal behavior or by browsing websites that are written by animal behavior specialists (such as the Animal Behavior Journal)

Answer Applied Animal BehavioristThe Animal Behavior Society (ABS) is the leading professional organization in North America for the study of animal behavior, and was the first organization in the United States to offer a certification program for applied animal behaviorists. Certification constitutes recognition by the Animal Behavior Society that the professional applied animal behaviorist meets the educational, experiential and ethical standards required by the society.Certified applied animal behaviorists come from a variety of backgrounds. However, they all share a common understanding of animal behavior theory, as well as application. Animal behaviorists can be educated in several disciplines, including psychology, biology, zoologyand animal science. A professional applied animal behaviorist has expertise in the principles of animal behavior, in the research methods of animal behavior, in applying animal behavior principles to companion animal behavior problems, and in disseminating knowledge about animal behavior through teaching and research.Educational and experiential requirements are extensive and include a doctoral degree (or masters degree for an associate applied animal behaviorist) from an accredited college or university in a biological or behavioral science with an emphasis on animal behavior and a minimum of five years of professional experience. Another option is a doctorate from an accredited college or university in veterinary medicine plus two years in a university approved residency in animal behavior and three additional years of professional experience in applied animal behavior.At the time of this writing, there are only 32 Certified Applied Animal Behaviorists in the United States.
