Animal Behavioural Specialists can be found world-wide and the workplace ranges from dog training facilities to marine facilities with stations all over the world. Many Animal Behavioural Specialists become trainers, working in fields such as dog training, horse wrangling, and as zoological trainers.
Other areas include researchers that study through the afore-mentioned marine stations on the ocean. These behaviour specialists study the effects of many factors on the marine life, taking note of disease, feeding patterns, and mating patterns of several species of marine life.
A growing number of animal behaviourists work in government laboratories or in private business. These jobs involve health-related research, such as a drug company conducting research on the behavioural effects of new drugs on animals, or examining the links between animal behaviour and disease.
