Training and Socialization 101
As a pet owner, you love spending time with your pet. You like to have your dog accompany you on walks, hikes and trips and your cat when friends come over or when you are enjoying time outdoors. But those activities are only enjoyable if your pet enjoys them, too, and if they are behaving appropriately! Whether we realize it or not, we continually influence our animals’ emotions and behavior. They learn through everyday interactions and experience, not just formal training. It’s up to us to adopt a lifestyle for living with animals where WE shape the behavior. A lifestyle centered on consistent positive reinforcement. This video will introduce you to Fear Free training—ways to teach your pet to become your perfect companion by implementing scientifically sound, humane, and veterinarian-approved behavior modification ideas.
