“The Human-Animal Bond – Exploring New Dimensions in Training”
March 11-13, 2016
Current research is showing us that wolves and dogs have mental gifts far surpassing our earlier expectations. This interactive, hands-on seminar/workshop will explore new ways we can relate more effectively and build stronger bonds with our canine companions while improving our teaching skills. We’ll explore mimicry training (“Do as I Do” and “Like Me”), platform work, teaching veterinary handling, Bond-Based Choice Teaching® and other cutting-edge ways of communication.
The seminar/workshop will include multiple opportunities to mingle with the wolves as well as time to practice new skills with Wolf Park staff dogs. Register early as space is limited!
