“How do I stop my animal from…?” It’s a common phrase used throughout the zoo and animal training world, and one that unwittingly leads trainers to come up with punishment-based strategies in dealing with their animals’ behavior challenges. This talk will take a look into the challenges associated with training strategies that focus on the reduction or elimination of behaviors, and will outline an alternative strategy that seeks that uses adjustments to the trainer’s behavior, strategies, and environment to empower their animals to choose to do more desirable behaviors instead.
