Join Emily Cassell for this webinar on clicker training small animals.
Working with small animals is a fun and challenging experience for any trainer! Working with members of another species can only enhance your ability to work with dogs (or whatever your species of choice is)! Small animals are cute and lovable, but can be difficult to work with due to their frequent, instinctual fear responses. This webinar covers everything from how to properly house and feed your small pet to training advanced husbandry behaviors! While we all know the only way to change our dog's behavior is by changing our own, it is more difficult to determine how a small animal such as a rabbit is reading your body language and actions! Enjoy this learning experience and take lessons from a guinea pig to your next behavior consult with a fearful dog, cat, horse, or bird!
