Is it enough to train with reward-oriented methods? Or are there other elements that can optimize our training and our animal care?  

 In this presentation, Eva guides us through some fundamental questions about choice and control. She discusses how these concepts can be translated into observable phenomena, and provides practical examples of how twe can enhance the quality of life for the individuals in our care.

The recording is made available in cooperation with RpusExperten, Nadine Hehli and Simone Fasel https://www.lebenmithunden.eu/rplusexpert
