Understanding Behavior Through Working with Birds At The Animal Behavior Center, with Lara Joseph

Due to quickly selling out, popular demand, and positive feedback from attendees last year,
this workshop is being offered again this year.

Seating capacity is limited to ten working spots due to personalized attention and attendees working with the birds.

This training workshop is for you if:

  • you already have a basic understanding of positive reinforcement
  • you want to better understand Applied Behavior Analysis and positive reinforcement in working with animals
  • you find yourself struggling with how to approach a variety of animal situations
  • you want to work outside the box and challenge your approach to different behavior and training situations
  • you want to fine-tune your current knowledge of training to learning through different species
  • you currently work with animals professionally and/or want to increase the quality of life of any species you are currently working with
  • you want individualized attention and guidance through working with Lara Joseph and the team at The Animal Behavior Center

Ready to expand your knowledge through application? Birds can be some of the best teachers. We’ll be working with predator and prey. Both have different approaches through working with the hunter and the hunted. Identifying positive reinforcers is vast and change at a moment’s notice. Many species of birds are considered prey and aversives can be many and we will work on shaping skills in approaching, modifying behavior, teaching behaviors, and focus on fluency. Lara will guide you individually and in groups, pointing out potential issues in your approach and making sure you are set up for success. Our hands-on workshops receive high reviews from peers and other animal training professionals. We’ll be shaping your comfort level in working with a variety of species of birds and send you home with new ideas and approaches to your training and behavior modification struggles.

Birds we’ll be working with:

Black casque hornbills, toucanettes, kookaburras, parrots, and others. Behaviors you can learn can be scale training, recall, syringe training to accept medication, voluntary nail trims, and so much more.
