Position Vacant- Behaviour Veterinarian

Can’t stop talking about Behaviour? Neither can we!

Pet Behaviour Vet is looking for a vet with a strong interest in behavioural medicine to join a like-minded team who find behaviour as fascinating as you do! We are looking for someone to either work part or full-time.

What we do

Pet Behaviour Vet is a behaviour-only practice based in Monterey, Sydney, performing house call, phone and online behaviour consultations all over Sydney and surrounds. We also perform Vet-to-Vet teleconsultations, assisting GP vets in being able to perform their own behaviour consultations. As a large part of our caseload is by teleconsultation, much of the role can be performed from home, where we also complete our write-ups and email follow-ups.

Our practice is very well known and trusted in our community of referring vets, behaviourists and dog trainers, so our caseload is growing so fast that we need another vet to join our team!

Our point of difference

This is no ordinary vet practice, and this is not your average job!

  • Experience a refreshingly high compliance rate, as our clients are deeply committed to finding solutions for their pets’ behavioural problems. Our select clientele is usually referred by veterinarians or dog trainers, and many have already put a lot of work into educating themselves in behaviour.
  • Achieve better patient outcomes by observing and treating your patients in their own comfortable home environment where their behaviour is most true to form. Play an integral role in keeping these animals in their homes and out of shelters.
  • Create long-term relationships with patients and their incredibly dedicated families who genuinely care for and seek solutions for their pets. Witness first-hand the change you make in their lives as you follow up and manage these cases from start to finish.
  • Choose your happy place! Complete your admin work from home, outside in the sun, over a coffee at your local cafe, or alongside friendly colleagues at our head office (2 minute walk from the beach!).
  • Never feel alone. Our staff are always just a phone call or a Teams message away. Or choose to work in the office if you feel like doing some extroverting!
  • Experience genuine work-life balance by choosing your own hours. Whether you prefer to write up your reports after the kids are in bed, or during business hours, we just want your best work! Don’t want to work weekends? Neither do we!
  • Team work makes the dream work! Collaborate with an educated and supportive team who inspire excellence in one another on a daily basis. Be supported by highly competent and organised admin staff, literally employed to make your day easier so you can focus on what you do best: spend time on your cases. How often do you work with receptionists who are also qualified dog trainers?
  • Participate in regular Behaviour Rounds with our behaviour vets, dog trainers and animal behaviourist, so you will never feel lost in a case. Food is our love language, so our meetings are held over a meal provided by PBV. We have also been known to have ‘walking meetings’ along the Monterey beachfront.
  • Share cases with our in-house PhD animal behaviourist. Our industry-leading Integrated Care Plan allows us to give detailed, personalised behaviour management plans, better client compliance and better patient outcomes.
  • Feel safe at work. Work with a company dedicated to physical and mental safety as part of the THRIVE Cultivating Safe Teams Pilot Program.

What our staff say

Still not convinced? Listen to what our team says about working at Pet Behaviour Vet.

  • “Making the decision to leave general practice behind and work solely in behaviour for Pet Behaviour Vet has been the best decision I have ever made in my professional life.”
  • “I love working in a family-owned business where I get to feel like family and the owners care as much about my mental health as they do for the patients we see.”
  • “I love our meetings, always over great food, where we get to nerd out about behaviour together, learning from each other.”
  • “I love working with people as driven and passionate as I am to make a difference every day.”
  • “It’s so refreshing to have a job where I don’t have to feel guilty about working a short shift to allow me to pick my kids up from school. I know I can make it up to my team by finishing my shift when it is convenient for me.”
  • “If you love behaviour, you are going to love working for Pet Behaviour Vet.”

All About You

We won’t lie, we’re looking for someone special to join our team. Could it be you?

  • a degree in veterinary science (BVSc or DVM), and are you registered to work in NSW with at least 3 years’ clinical veterinary experience;
  • a demonstrated interest or qualification in veterinary behavioural medicine;
  • a detailed understanding of science-based, force-free training;
  • experience in performing veterinary behavioural consultations and in designing behaviour management programs;
