This badge signifies completion of the course Training Animals to Cooperate in Medical Care. It Can Be Easier Than You Think!
Veterinary medicine and force free animal training are two disciplines that are married in their approach of attending to high standards in animal welfare. Merging the practical application of these two fields can lead to improved animal welfare not only physically but also psychologically. Utilizing a foundation of easy to train behaviors, such as targeting, and stationing can facilitate medical care. More complex medical behaviors can be built using shaping procedures, some in surprisingly short amounts of time. Ultimately it is both to the patients and veterinarians’ benefit to consider training as an essential part of a treatment plan, especially when planning for long term preventative health care.
