Out of Control - Dare To Shape

Ann-Louise Ryrvik is an animal trainer and clicker training instructor: She has been training animals of different specience ever since she was a child – birds, fish, squirrels and everything in between. Horses and dogs have always been part of her life, and she has been competing in high levels obedience and working dog trials.  For Ann-Louise, seeing each animal a subjective being is key and she stresses the imortance of empowering them to be active and driving participants in their own learning.

Ann-Louise’s session:

Out of control – dare to shape!

Animal training is a skill that comes from hours and hours of practice. Sometimes we get stuck in theoretical reasoning that we never get to the actual practical training. Training is fun, and daring to give up control is important. No need to be afraid. Just do it!

Start Button Symposium

Start Button behaviors takes positive reinforcement training to a whole new level! Start buttons (and stop buttons) allow the learner to cue the trainer, and thereby control the pace and progress of the training session. In this presentation, a quartet of our speakers join forces and share their applications of this cutting edge approach.
