Biography:
Hi. My hobby is training animals. Since I don't have a dog, I train my guinea girls to do fun tricks. My method of choice is clicker training.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. I focused primarily on the science of learning and motivation because of my aspirations to be an animal trainer with a narrow interest on teaching interesting and novel behaviors--or "tricks". I interned at a dog training center during college, as well, and learned so much.

Clicker training changes the brain of the animal to be more curious, interactive, and aware of how their actions affect their lives--which make them even more eager to learn and also makes them even better pets and companions. I also focus on training low-stress handling so that my girls are happy and comfortable.

I hope to share my knowledge with other guinea pig owners!

Cavy's Choice 1: Consent

by ClicknCavy on 07-10-15 at 07:40 pm
As you may know, I am an animal trainer (actually, I am going to start working as a dog trainer, soon!).

I wrote a new article on my site, Click'n Cavies. The article is on the power of choice in taming and training guinea pigs. It is actually the first part in a series of article that will explore the use of choice in taming and training. I believe the most important application of choice in animal training is developing a system of consent, which is what this article is all about.
