We had a great time at Club AHA’s Feb. Lecture-Hoof to Woof: the difference between training horses and dogs. Ann Kinney, Educational Enrichment Director at the Aiken SPCA did a great job co-presenting with me.
My takeaways:We are basically reaching for the same goal with our horses and our dogs, a fun, functional and fantastic relationship. We need to consider how they are in nature in order to better understand where they are coming from and how we can better connect and direct. And there is a huge learning opportunity with both horses and dogs during the time we have them either on a leash or a lead. By being clear leaders while leading, we can engage both our canine and equine partners and establish greater connectivity.
Please enjoy the audio of the event. There’s a little background sound in the beginning, but I think you will enjoy the content.
All my Best!
