Solve behavioral problems.



Enrich your pet's life.



This 8-hour class is designed for caregivers of any species of animal–large or small, mammal, bird, reptile or fish. Through a combination of lecture, video, in-class problem-solving exercises, and games, you will learn:
  • the principals of behavior and how all animals learn
  • how to develop strategies for changing animal behavior and preventing future unwanted behavior
  • the basics of positive, effective, and enriching training techniques that can be used with any species of animal


After completing the class, you will be able to

  • see how the universal principals of learning apply to your animals and yourself
  • understand the role animal caregivers have in the development of behaviors in their pets
  • observe more accurately your animal's and your own behavior
  • develop strategies to set up the environment for success
  • understand the basic process of behavior modification
  • understand the pros and cons of various training strategies
  • start using skills to effectively train animals in your home
