• animal's
  • Animal behavior consultants are distinct from animal trainers, in that their primary goal is not to train an animal to have basic manners or to perform a task, such as agility competition for dogs, but to mitigate behaviors that are problems for the animal's owner. (wikipedia.org)
  • they may be inappropriate given the individual animal's living situation and either undesirable from the client's point of view, a cause of diminished welfare for the animal, or both. (wikipedia.org)
  • After the initial contact, the animal behavior consultant collects a history of the animal's life so far, a description of the current living situation, a description of the problem behavior and the circumstances in which the behavior happens, and a history of what the clients have done to address the issue so far. (wikipedia.org)
  • They will also teach the client to recognize the environmental antecedents to the problem behavior-what causes the behavior to happen-and basic observation of the animal's body language and recognition of stress signals. (wikipedia.org)
