CONSISTENCY WITH FLEXIBILITY: QUALITY MANAGEMENT OF BEHAVIOR CASES
Debbie Martin • WASHINGTON, DC
Animal training and behavior cases are complicated and emotionally charged. We can get sidetracked or forget to advise the client on a specific aspect of management or training. Achieving consistency and quality in managing behavior cases requires a framework to minimize oversight and provide clients with thorough care. However, the structure also needs to be flexible and amenable to change based on the individual patient, client, and situation. This Session will explore general treatment guidelines and an approach to treatment discussion that is being implemented in a veterinary behavior specialty practice.
At ClickerExpo Washington, DC Debbie Martin will explore general treatment guidelines and an approach to treatment discussion that can be applied for a veterinary behavior specialty practice, or individually by an animal trainer or behavior consultant.
From dogs to penguins to rhinos to alligators, behavior analysis has universal relevance across species, settings, and behaviors! At ClickerExpo LIVE, you’ll get the opportunity to observe a live behavior consultation between Susan G. Friedman, Ph.D. and the team at The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, as they teach a rhino and a “congregation” of alligators to participate in husbandry and medical care in real-time.
Until then, enjoy this short clip from their 2021 live consult, which focused on giraffes and penguins!
