What to expect
Particulatim provides animal handling training for facility design customers and an a la carte service. Training can be conducted on-site or virtually, where possible.
Animal handling training begins in the classroom with the basics of the animal first learning about how to read and communicate with them. The training then goes to an application process. Dr. Kip shows the class how to work the animal first and then allows participants a chance with one-on-one coaching. All training is recorded to highlight areas for improvement.
Dr. Kip has years of animal handling experience and has attended Bud Williams’ School and has experience in the field as a consulting veterinarian. The goal of the training is to better understand the connection between animal and handler to reduce stress and increase safety for both.
Each training session is unique to the facility so contact us for pricing.
