Episode 151: Dr Susan Friedman Part 2: Key Questions


We are celebrating the milestone of our 150th episode with our good friend Dr. Susan Friedman. Our conversation lasted the better part of an afternoon so our celebration will be spilling out over several weeks.


We ended last week with the question: if you got a new animal, what would you do differently? Susan starts us off by talking about her parrots. She looks back at the way in which she was originally taught to handle her African grey. She compares his behavior with her other birds who don't share his early training history. You could easily substitute horses for parrots. The training approach sounds very similar.


The conversation then shifted to a question about expectations and Susan shares with us three simple questions that help her clients solve their animal training puzzles.
