Animal Behavior

What does it mean when your cat blinks at you?  When your dog grabs your slipper and runs away?

Speaking the language of another species is a beautiful experience.  How to do that without the dominance based methods of the past is a challenge now attempted world wide by gifted trainers working with horses and dogs and virtually all species.

How can you and your animal companion fit in?

The positive reinforcement method called clicker training is easy to learn.   Children the age of seven can learn the techniques and begin to “talk” to their pet.

But training alone cannot overcome the need for exercise and movement all species have.

Horses need to run, dogs need freedom to move and a long walk every day, cats need to stalk and climb and sprint.

We all need contact with our own kind.
