Camelid Handling Clinics


Introduction 
Our training is based on the Camelidynamics approach which is a respectful and effective way to train and handle llamas and alpacas. Both Victoria and Roger are Senior Camelidynamics Consultants and have trained extensively with it's founder.

It was developed by Marty McGee Bennett who has over 30 years of experience with camelids. It is a collection of methods that represents the most positive least intrusive techniques for training and managing camelids.

Marty’s methods incorporate elements of TTouch and TTeam; principles and techniques developed by Linda Tellington Jones which have been thoughtfully adapted for llamas and alpacas.

More recently, we have looked to the world of behaviour and found that all of Marty's principles are supported by the science. We look more specifically at why our animals do what they do, recognising  how we make it difficult for our alpacas and llamas to do what we want.

We will help you to learn how to train and manage your llamas and alpacas in a way that gives you an understanding of their behavior and the importance of balance and leverage in paving the way for cooperation instead of relying on restraint and force. Victoria has gained a Certificate of Excellence following an intensive 8 week international webinar course Living and Learning with Animals 2014 with Dr Susan Friedman of Utah State University. USA.
You will learn a set of skills that once mastered, make every animal easier to work with. Whether your difficulty lies in catching, haltering, and leading or husbandry tasks like injections or toe nail trimming, this approach based on Camelidynamics principles offers respectful, scientifically sound answers that anyone can learn and use safely and effectively.
