Training the Animals is the Easy Part...

A documentary

About the film

A well-trained animal doing an amazing task is breathtaking to animal lovers and those who benefit from the animal’s performance. But animal training is not magic. You don’t need to have “a way with animals” as long as you’re willing to learn something new.

Our film shows you how trainers are achieving the great behaviors they are and how humane and effective training can be when we use the principles of behavior science. The practitioners tell you how they got started and the conflicts they encountered with the opinions of trainers who didn’t believe animals could be trained to high levels using this technology.
