30 learners earned this badge

The Future Animal Trainer badge shows that this learner has completed the Animal Behavior and Training session of The Anti-Cruelty Society's After School Advocates program with no more than 2 absences. In this 5-week course, learners are taught the fundamentals of reading cat and dog body language and the basics of classical and operant conditioning. After showing proficiency in these skills, learners are - in small groups - assigned an adoptable cat and dog. Together, they must create a behavior plan to teach their animals simple behaviors to improve their adoptability. After their plans are approved by the Society's behavior and training team, learners will then work together to put their plans into action to help the assigned animals find their forever homes.
