One of the strongest and most common reinforcers is attention,
yet it is the one reinforcer used the least or misused the most.
Have you ever wished you could spend a day with a trainer to see first-hand how they train, how they deal with daily
behavior issues, and have that opportunity to implement their techniques on different animals? Have you ever wondered how they deal with aggression when it happens, reinforce alternative behaviors, train new behaviors, and keep all of the animals under control? Well now you can. Come and spend a day with me and the staff here at The Animal Behavior Center. Join us behind-the-scenes and experience first hand how we work with each animal. You will have the day with me to discuss approaches, discuss your behavior concerns, watch how the techniques are implemented, and even implement them yourself when you train. With the variety of animals here, we can focus on several different behaviors from working with aggression, getting an animal to go where we need it to go, getting an animal to stay in a certain area until cued to do otherwise, working with behavior issues, and more. We will discuss how positive reinforcement works and learning how to apply approaches in behavior analysis.
The day includes discussion, training, local travel while here, and lunch. The day begins at 10am and will wrap up around 4pm.

“As a professional trainer, I believe that continued education is really important. I also think it is important to be thoughtful about where you invest your time and money in terms of learning opportunities. Traveling from California to Ohio to spend two days doing Lara Joseph’s Day with the Trainer was so worth it on so many levels. I learned so much. Lara was very committed to working on what I wanted to focus on. She made me feel comfortable and relaxed in her coaching and teaching. Lara and her animals are wonderful teachers and I have every intention of going back to train with them again as soon as I can! I highly recommend this program to anyone who is interested in animal training or behavior.”
