GOATS is going through a change! Instead of a summit it is now a series! It is still catered towards professionals and aspiring professionals who work with exotic animals in managed care. This series is primarily focused on providing participants with information designed to enhance practical application skills and knowledge. There is also a special emphasis on providing evidence based information. Presenters have been carefully chosen for their quality content and engaging presentation skills. This series also features live training demonstrations from around the world. Participants also have the opportunity to partake in a Mastermind Sessions in which we discuss a hot topics in the animal training field.

Our registration has been revised so that participants can register for individual presentations. However members of Animal Training Fundamentals. can attend GOATS as part of their membership benefits! This is a significant savings. Members also receive verifiable badges automatically for attending the live presentations. Members can also watch the recordings later. Those who have already registered will get access to the presentations that were originally scheduled for 2021 and have been re-scheduled for 2022 or if you are a member we will refund your purchase.

The first GOATS was held as a summit in 2020. I am looking forward to continue GOATS as a series. You will find links to access information on past GOATS events and upcoming GOATS on this page.
