About the Center
TRAINING IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE FORM OF COMMUNICATION WE HAVE WITH ANIMALS. REINFORCE THE BEHAVIORS YOU WANT TO SEE INCREASE.
The journaling of my work with an array of animals began attracting a following of people interested in working with animals and behavior change. I soon began traveling the United States giving presentations about my work. My presentations soon began turning into 7-hour workshops. Soon I felt I was away from home and away from my animals more than I was with them. That is when I began looking for a large building to turn into an area where people could fly to me and take classes, workshops, and personal training. On February 21, 2013 The Animal Behavior Center was officially opened for business.
I’ve been there and I understand the hardships, frustration, and feeling of failure in not being able to change behavior in an animal. That is and even tougher feeling of frustration when you are giving it everything you have for the benefit of the animal and finding you don’t have the tools to take the next step. I’ve spent uncountable hours standing in the rain, heat, and sub-zero temperatures working with unreleasable wildlife trying to train, approach, and keep them calm and prepare them for educational programs. I know that frustration.
