Over the past several years I have been lucky enough to spend time with Lara and the animals at The Animal Behavior Center. Lara has developed an amazing and truly unique educational facility. As a long-time dog trainer (25 years +) I came to The Animal Behavior Center for the opportunity to learn about and work with new species. Lara’s depth of knowledge about all things bird-related is impressive. But even more impressive is her obvious devotion to the well-being of all the animals in her care and her dedication to positive reinforcement as a basis for her training.
I really admire Lara’s focus on education and freely sharing information related to animal care and training. She works hard to improve the lives of all animals by helping others learn more about scientifically based training methods based on mutual respect and affection.
If you ever have the opportunity to visit The Animal Behavior Center or learn from Lara take it! You will not be disappointed. Lara and her animals are excellent ambassadors for the power of positive reinforcement based training.
