Contextualize animal training as a science-informed endeavor.
Our animal training program claims to have a scientific approach, but how do we know it that is true? What is the basis we work from? Learn to differentiate between science and pseudoscience, and fit animal training components into various branches of science. Strengthen your awareness that understanding is not static, but constantly grows. Explore the philosophy underlying science-based animal training 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:
- Appreciate how science is a valuable tool for animal training.
- Recognize the hallmarks of pseudoscience.
