23 Jun 2021
Vet Tech Theater
You can train a cat? This is the common response that is given from clients when discussing a feline behavioral therapy plan. Educating and training clients on learning theory and positive reinforcement is especially important when wanting to create a successful treatment plan. Students will learn the basics of positive reinforcement and why clicker training techniques are at the forefront of the animal training world. The instructor will demonstrate the mechanics and usage of the clicker as well as video demonstrations with felines. The demonstrations will review the two different training techniques of clicker training: capturing and shaping behavior.
