Lara’s workshop is fantastic for people who know the basics of positive reinforcement but would like the hands on experience to get that extra step in training. She starts with interactive activities without animals to learn the beginning steps of positive reinforcement. Then we work with animals with a wide spectrum of personalities, some with lots of experience with strangers and even new animals who are less social.
This is great for introducing the trainers to all animal personality types to prove any animal can be trained. She gives great examples of being able to train all types of animals, such as training her blind and deaf pups, or target and station training the gators.
I love the hands-on experience and learning more of the terminology. She also takes into account specific behaviors attendees would like to train and shows the process. Lara is full of knowledge and I’m glad she decides to share it with people who want better for their animals.
