Learn how to offer clarity to the dog, to help them better see and understand when to perform certain behaviors. Equally important, teach them when not to perform certain behaviors. Whether you want a dog that only shakes a paw when asked (instead of scraping your arm in repeated pestering attempts to get a cookie), or whether you want to create an environmental cue that applies across many situations (see someone approaching - move to heel) - a better understanding of how learning factors into stimulus control can give greater control over reinforced behaviors.

When introducing a horse to clicker training for the first time the horse will often appear uninterested in the food being offered. They may not attempt any behaviors and will sometimes just walk away from the trainer.
This webinar examines the many reasons why a horse in a training situation may seem to lack interest in the food and/or training session and how best to motivate the horse and increase their interest in participating.
Michelle has been working professionally as an equine trainer and behavior consultant for over 3 years. She specializes in gentling mustangs and working with fearful, unapproachable equines. She also offers online coaching as well as in person training for human/equine teams.
Presented by Emily Cassell

Injection training-it seems like a lofty goal, something attainable only by the most skilled trainers and bomb-proof of pets. In reality, training for injections is not all that difficult. Much of the misconceptions about the difficulty of this training likely stems from our own fears of needles and, of course, injecting our own animals!
Training for injections is just as straight-forward as training any other behavior. This presentation will detail every step of training this behavior from creating your materials and picking the right reinforcer to assessing your own progress by listening to your "patient." Examples from the zoo and pet world will provide a variety of experiences from which any pet owner can find something to relate! The goal of this presentation is to break a seemingly impressive behavior down into simple steps to provide trainers with the confidence to teach their pets to participate in their own medical care!
