When caring for an animal – working or family pet – health and well-being have first priority. Animal and care taker need a broad skill set for regular grooming (brushing, eye-, ear-, teeth-control, clipping or filing nails, trimming), health care visits at the vet (being touched and physically examined, auscultate, taking pulse and temperature, vaccinating, drawing blood, putting on bandages and much more) and the care in case of an illness or after an accident (administering pills, eye-, ear-drops, changing bandages, inhalation, etc.).
Especially when performed regularly, these tasks should be as comfortable and relaxed as possible. The needed skills and desensitization can be trained step-by-step. Your animal learns to cooperate and take part voluntarily in their own care.
In our workshops we start with training the basics, working our way up to challenging husbandry and medical skills. To make your routine care and vet health check-ups as relaxed and low-stress as possible.
At our Training Center in Sindelsdorf, Bavaria, we help you train challenging husbandry- and medical-situations with your animal, so the routine handling, brushing, nail trimming and vet visits can be low-stress for your animal and you.
