The Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI) and North American Veterinary Community (NAVC) have jointly developed a new certification program on the human animal bond. A set of online course material developed by experts in the field can be used to learn about the health benefits of human-animal interaction. For a fee, veterinarians and other clinic staff can take an exam to achieve the certification.

More information on the health benefits of animals can be read in the Merck Veterinary Manual.
