Mid Atlantic Animal Behavior Conference 2019
On October 19th 2018 Dr. Low purchased two sales authority mustangs from the BLM at an adoption in Lexington, VA. In this video you will experience the story of their initial gentling using protected contact and positive reinforcement. This is a recording of the key note address Dr. Low gave at the 2019 Mid Atlantic Animal Behavior Conference titled: Gentling Mustangs With Positive Reinforcement and Protected Contact.
Positive reinforcement for Jugular Blood Draw
In this video Dr. Low demonstrates the use of a stationary target and positive reinforcement to teach Max the mustang how to have his blood drawn with minimal restraint. Notice how relaxed Max is during the blood draw.
Positive Reinforcement for Trailer Loading
In this video I use the target and positive reinforcement to teach Red the mustang to be led into a trailer for the first time.
