Last week we began a conversation with Vidyha Karthekiyan. If you want to learn more about her training, you can visit her web site and facebook page - theunlikelytricksters.com. There you will meet Beanie, her site hound and her two cats. From that you can correctly infer that the animals in Vidyha’s life are not horses.
If you listened to last week’s podcast, you will know we are very much on the same wavelength when it comes to our animals. She works with dogs and cats, we work with horses. The difference in species doesn’t matter. Concept training can be taught to them all.
In this episode we define what concept training means, and then Vidyha describes some of the games she plays with Beanie. She uses match to sample to play card games we remember from childhood - Go Fish and War. Intrigued? So were we, so of course we invited Vidyha to join us for a conversation on concept training. What does that mean and how do you teach it? Have fun!
