Our mission is to prevent and alleviate fear, anxiety, and stress in pets by inspiring and educating the people who care for them.

Welcome to Fear Free – where veterinary health care professionals “Take the pet out of petrified” and “Put the treat into treatment!” and where pet owners are “Helping pets live happy, healthy, full lives”.

Fear Free provides online and in-person education to veterinary professionals, the pet professional community, and pet owners.  Our courses provide learners and pet lovers with the knowledge and tools to not only look after a pet’s physical well-being, but her emotional well-being as well. We know we must feed the pet’s mind as well as the body so we make sure that in-home enrichment and Fear Free training are front-and-center with pet professionals and pet owners alike.

Founded by “America’s Veterinarian,” Dr. Marty Becker, Fear Free has become one of the single most transformative initiatives in the history of companion animal practice, with over 25,000 veterinary and pet professionals committed to becoming Fear Free certified.

We get you. Like you, we love pets like family, and want what is best for them – so click on the portal of interest to you for more information about Fear Free courses, education, membership opportunities and celebration of that unique affection-connection called the human-animal bond.
