Learn to analyze behaviors and manipulate antecedents to ensure your animals’ success.


Animal training is all about managing the environment to make the desired behavior likely to happen. After defining that behavior, the next step is appreciating and managing the antecedents. Learn to appreciate and manage the behavior and to create objective criteria for behaviors. Master the associated vocabulary and concepts related to these elements of the 3-part contingency statement. Explore antecedents and behaviors through reading, videos, and online activities. This achievement will be evaluated by a quiz and written essay assessment. This badge is required for anyone participating at Mustang Camp either as an intern or trainer.

In this course, you will learn to:

  • Investigate and manipulate antecedents to behaviors.
  • Describe the parameters of desired behaviors.
