Many thanks to the brilliant @hannah_branigan for inviting me back to chat more about husbandry care. We ended up going in a few different directions covering various other topics. Lots of rabbit holes with our fantastic live guests via her Patreon page. The podcast was recorded, so please stay tuned for the link.
🐾 A special shoutout to sweet Santino for helping with a live eye drop behavior demonstration.
🍷 And I called our young Vito “Vino” by accident. Or was it really an accident? Who knows. But “Vino” sends Hannah his wags! 🍷

Thank you to @hundifokus.no (Nina Haaland) and our live webinar guests for joining me on Tuesday from around the world. I’m always beyond grateful for Santino, Vito, Lucia, and Topolina’s excellent co-instructor support to help enhance our demonstrations to the next level.
[📸 Photo credit highlights via @hundifokus.no ]
*📸| Santino showed off his paw soak behavior with brand new approximations in real-time.
*📸| Vito showed off ear cleaning while in a clownfish trick. Plus a voluntary weight in our backyard.
*📸| The kittens weighed in voluntarily while on our dining room table.
I’m also grateful for the many excellent questions that help personalize and navigate our group chat into dynamic directions.
🤓 Plus, I was invited back thanks to the team vote for a “Part 2” webinar. Lucky me! Details to follow soon.
Gonna go curl up with The Torelli Kids. They are my best teachers! 🐾💖

One of my talented mentorship teams sent a fantastic video update. Team Voodoo is doing a fantastic job with some of our husbandry at home goals in collaboration with their supportive veterinary behaviorist. Voodoo is such a handsome pup, too!

Husbandry at Home:
🐾Vaccination Preparation
🐾 Photo #1
Our young Vito is on deck for his next vaccination. We have three weeks to prep. That might read like far away, but time flies and it’s just around the corner. I’ve outlined a plan with our amazing veterinary team. Asked my important questions ahead of time. They consistently reinforce me by providing the helpful details we need. I’m documenting our journey via video. But here’s a screenshot from today. He’s offering his clownfish trick, nose facing forward, for Q-Tip gentle tactile. This position is going to be a valuable point of success as we build our plan and reinforcement history. He is so much fun to learn with!

As positive reinforcement trainers, the emotional health of our animals is the utmost priority! Animal Actor Pepsi, (Krypto the super dog, Titans - Netflix) is learning more about Cooperative Care for a stress-free experience for his makeup application to match the other dogs who play Krypto.

The dogs use an AHA (American Humane Association) approved animal friendly chalk and paint, commonly used on animals for conformation shows. While the other dogs have no issue with the spray, Pepsi has to have the paint applied with a sponge to his body causing the process to take 3x as long. Pepsi was found abandoned in a snow pile, and we are unsure of his history.

We would like to build up his confidence, so he is not afraid of the spray, but also for medical care. Cooperative care is a great way to ensure that medical procedures, nail trims, brushing, ear cleaning and grooming are positive experiences!

Luckily, we have begun working with @laura.monaco.torelli - Animal Behavior Training Concepts who is an expert in Cooperative Care! Laura, owner of Animal Behaviour Training Concepts is also on the faculty at the prestigious Karen Pryor Academy and teaches for Dr Susan Friedman at Behaviour Works. Previously Laura has worked on stress free handling with the animals at the Shedd Aquarium,San Diego Zoo and supervisory trainer at Brookfield Zoo.

We are so grateful to Laura for adding her expertise!! If you would like more information on lessons for cooperative care, you can reach Laura through her website:

Zoom session 1 is done with Team Walter. He found an amazing home after being rescued as an older dog. Seven years young! He is living an adored life while his health is being nurtured with excellent veterinary care and husbandry at home games. His new family purchased a ramp to accommodate his structural needs. We integrated some simple, positive training games, and look at him do his thing! Slow, steady, with plenty of balance and stable footing. I’m so lucky to be able to collaborate with this wonderful team.

In December, I observed a lower incisor not looking quite right. Brought the girls in for their annual wellness exam two months ago, and our veterinarian (Dr. Coloumbe) confirmed that tiny Topolina needs a comprehensive dental procedure to conduct X-rays and assess from there. In the meantime, I’ve been capturing and shaping oral exams to keep visual tabs while we wait for her dental appointment. I took this photo yesterday and sent it to our veterinary office for their records.
In the meantime, little mouse has been amazing with our short sessions. Her front paws are extremely curious with her sharp little needle-like weapons.
So I asked myself:
“How would I teach a mouth open behavior if you were a sea otter that uses their busy paws to push hands away or to grab hands and nibble on them?”
We pulled together a team plan. Topolina showed me where she likes TO place her paws instead. And I reinforce her for brief-duration visual oral exams to keep an eye on those tiny incisors.
Her dental procedure is on deck very soon. Here’s hoping our young girl has a healthy report.

Thank you to Jamie Popper for this amazing update. She and Roo are a fantastic team. I’m grateful for her generous mention and for joining my ClickerExpo husbandry lab years ago. We had a blast. This is beautiful training to watch. Congratulations to Team Roo!

AHHHH! I didn't think I could be more proud of Roo and our relationship after our Rally runs yesterday, but this boy impressed me again!

Roo is beginning to show signs of aging. He has arthritis in his hips and some irregularities in his lumbosacral area. Under the direction of a veterinarian, we are working on conditioning skills to build and maintain muscle in those areas. Shout out to Dr. Leslie Eide of The Total Canine: Veterinary Sports Medicine & Conditioning!

In addition to this we are trying Adequan injections to help treat arthritis and relieve joint pain. This medication soothes joint pain and stimulates joint cartilage repair.

Adequan is administered by injection. Today Roo and I put our training to the test. It was important to me that if we proceeded with this as a treatment that Roo would consent to the injection. I didn't want it to become a battle between us.

This is a very short snippet of an 8-minute long video. We've been inspired and supported along this journey by many different people. Laura Monaco Torelli from @aLaura Monaco Torelli - Animal Behavior Training Concepts first introduced me to the idea of husbandry and cooperative care 4+ years ago at a Clicker Expo Conference. Ken Ramirez has shared many lessons that I've gleaned tips from. And Jenny Wyffels helped Roo and I determine the best set up for me to administer medication on my own.

I'm so happy to see that Roo was willing to participate in the session (hunks of steak may have played a part) and that his reaction to the injection was fairly minimal. The injection made a noise which we hadn't yet proofed for.

I'm so grateful we've built this relationship, and for the many hands that have helped us get here.

Our young Vito has been acting increasingly hungry as the weather gets colder. So we had “weigh too much fun!” with our hoofstock scale to do some husbandry at home games to see what the data shows. Then I called our veterinary office to tell them his current weight for their files. Come join us in this video, bring hot coffee, and your virtual nibbles for Vito!
