University Connected Learning
There are communication difficulties in every relationship, especially the ones closest to us. This class will help you understand the physical, mental and emotional connection you have with your companion animals and use this awareness to effectively communicate with them and also change their behavior. These are not traditional training methods but rather a unique way to move from conflict to cooperation and deepen the experience of sharing your life with dogs, cats or horses. We will also explore more intuitive techniques involving asking specific questions and receiving answers and will discuss some current topics in the ethical treatment of animals. There will be one Saturday field trip to practice the communication skills learned in class and we will also work from photographs.
