June 13-14th 2020: Near Fresno, CA
Focus for this clinic is on: How to improve the relationship with your dressage horse by incorporating more positive reinforcement training strategies into your current program. Build more enthusiasm for training sessions, reduce anxiety and help prepare your horse for veterinary exams and for the farrier.
Does your horse “mug” you for treats so you don’t use them as a reward? Dr. Zeligs will show you how to use treats effectively and with your horse’s respect and trust.
Day 1- safety (antecedent arrangements), bridging and safe feeding, calm defaults and introduction to targets
Day 2- moving targets and using targets and R+ to promote reduced anxiety during medical work/farrier.

Now OPEN for registration
Mechanical Skill Development for the Detection K9 Handler
Brought to you by K9 Behavior Consortium LLC in partnership with Animal Training and Research International
Instructors: Craig Schultz, Gregory Strickland and Dr Jenifer Zeligs
Are you interested in enhancing your understanding of reward selection and delivery systems? Do you want to improve your handler mechanics? Come join us for this jam-packed 3-day seminar that is designed to help you step out of your comfort zone and challenge your assumptions in learning theory through practical exercises, interactive discussions, and live demonstrations. The first 2 days will be a blend of classroom and hands-on experiences (65% classroom and interactive exercises and 35% odor detection) that leads the detection canine handler through understanding reward selection and utilization to improving your mechanical skills in order to maximize performance and minimize handler cueing. The third day will be a blend of odor detection work and hands on implementation of learning theory with California Sea Lions. The cost will be $800.00 per person for working slots and 425.00 for audit slots. Audit slots will be able to observe sea lion training but will not be able to participate in hands-on activities. You don’t want to miss this unique opportunity. Space will be limited.

Praise for ATR Workshops:
“That course was great, I learned a lot and I will definitely use it in the future during training with animals.”
– Krysztof Piorkowski
This “was my first [workshop] about non domesticated animals and all I can say that I want more. More experience, more knowledge, just amazing. These 3 days were special for me, you are great teacher. Also as a person who struggles with depression again I want to thank you for giving a kind of purpose. Especially training session with lions show me how important is to help animals at zoo, prepare them, reduce their stress. Thank you, thank you, thank you😊”
“I’d like to tell you how grateful I am for the opportunity to learn from you [Dr. Zeligs] – not only so many technical nuances of training and practical hints, but also ‘the heart’….You showed us the way by having the guts to always put the good of the animal first. I also appreciate the message about being humble, nonjudgmental and caring.”
