TRAINING MEDICAL BEHAVIORS WITHOUT POISONING THE RELATIONSHIP
KEN WORKS WITH THE ALPACAS AFTER THEIR SHEARING
The alpacas have been sheared and are now ready for the hot summer ahead! Watch as Ken does a training session with the alpacas two hours after the shearing – they came running to participate! This is an example of the benefit of separating training sessions from uncomfortable medical procedures – a key component in the husbandry training process that Ken teaches at The Ranch. With positive reinforcement the relationship is strong and can quickly overcome a less than ideal experience.
