14: The Science is the Same: From Zoo Training to Pet Training with Sarah Dugger, Good Dog and Company
May is National Pet Month so this episode Sarah Dugger from Good Dog and Company discusses that, while the environments may be different, the principles and applications of the science of behavior change is the same between training in a zoo and training pets. Since Sarah started her career in a zoological setting, she is able to provide a unique perspective on the future of animal training in the home. Sarah also does some functional assessments of some common behaviors in the pet training world and how her experiences in a zoological setting helped to inform the best, most ethical interventions. Tune in for not one, but two, Training Tales from Sarah as she talks about walking her dog off lease down a mountain and the resiliency of a young, injured mountain lion cub.
