39 What Are the Fundamentals of Animal Training?


In this episode, we talk about how our training ethos shapes every interaction we forge with the birds in our care. There are some great ways that we can build our foundation through a firm understanding of the animal training fundamentals, so let’s get into it! How do you start training before you even start training??

Tangents include how we can science up the animal training community with our actions, why did I refer to myself in the third person???? and how is November going by so fast.
