Feature Seminar

Animal Behavior Modification, A New Human Science-Based View
Anthrozoology | Mentoring

This seminar is the result of all Roberto Barata’s career over these years, with passages in different dog training fields, since the military working dogs to his present researching, coaching, counselling and mentoring work with owners and professionals with different species and daily intercultural practical experience.

This seminar is a deep reflection of animal behavior modification in human societies and about us, as animals, with solid argumentation, real facts and a science-based approach to his training philosophy and techniques.

As a result of lack of an anthrozoological view in animal behavior modification, Roberto introduced new concepts and models based on scientific evidence and empirical knowledge, demystifying popular theories, concepts and current approaches, including the professionals daily life and all their difficulties.

The Mentoring component applied to animal training will give to the participants a set of new professional tools for communicating with their clients in real situations of trainer’s life.

You will be challenged to use your own critical thinking and improve yourself as a professional and person. One to four days seminar.
