There is no substitute for seeing CAMELIDynamics in action…
…taught by the person who invented it! Marty has traveled over a million miles around the world teaching her brand of animal understanding. It isnt enough to have a mastery of the material, a teacher must be able to excite and inspire. Marty is exceptional at both working with animals and teaching people. She uses training aids she developed herself along with a variety of role playing exercises designed to help owners really understand their wooly buddies.
There is nothing like feeling what it is like to wear a halter or to be led, to give you a whole different point of view. Have fun, be inspired and leave with a higher level of skill and understanding. Marty teaches a variety of courses lasting between 1-4 days. Marty is a certified TAGTeacher and uses this new teaching technology to insure that your learning experience is as positive an experience for you as it is for the animals you work with. Keep your eye on her calendar for events that feature CAMELIDynamics demonstrations, Marty may be presenting a lecture or demonstration at an association meeting or show in your area.
I am getting somewhat caught up so I am reviewing all newsletters and forums that I have missed; however, that is not to say that I have forgotten your teachings. Your book is at my bedside for reference at all times and your techniques are applied on a daily basis. Approaching llamas from the viewpoint of a behaviorist puts a complete different light on the matter. We are doing feet, shots, weight etc. right now and I have again discussed the concept of balance. The co-owner is in charge of nails and it is amazing how easy the llamas have become with your advice. I usually hold and we use the chute. I monitor to make sure the llamas are always balanced and comfortable. The co-owner has applied your approach to lifting legs and the llamas are already lifting their legs as she approaches. No fuss. As I hold the lead, they calmly get on the scale and stand while I’m reading the numbers. The scale does not have any barriers around it. Of course we also have the llamas that are work in progress but using your tools and techniques makes it look easy when working with one that is still learning the ropes.
