Come spend three days with long-time animal trainer Ken McCort, the animals, and staff of Wolf Park, where we invite to learn all about the neurological functions and interactions of different behaviors, and motor patterns in our captive species! In three jam-packed days, we hope to aid in the discovering of and discussion in the many differences and similarities we share with the canine brain! Ken will demonstrate training techniques with the foxes, coyotes, and wolves and help us better understand unique brain functions that drive animal behavior. This is a great opportunity to learn through demonstrations, lectures, and interactions with the canids of Wolf Park. McCort will emphasis new research on neuro-biology and how it affects training, and other possible topics such as learning theory, drives and breed differences in behavior. This is an opportunity to learn about a variety of canids, with lots to see and do, that dog lovers and trainers will not want to miss! Participants will also be invited to join in Howl Night opportunities, early morning wolf observation time and a presentation on wolf body language and safety. Each participant will receive a personalized folder full of information about the park. Sign up today for an event you will never forget! Opportunities to meet our ambassador species will be present (situation and weather permitting.) All interactions will be tied back to the ways in which we can better understand the wolf's domestic counterpart (our dogs) and how learning their minds can help improve our bond and understanding of our most cherished friends. Gates open at 8:30 on Friday. Participants may also join the Friday and Saturday Howl night programs. The seminar will conclude by 4 p.m. on Sunday. All three breakfasts, lunches, and one diner are included in the fee.
