Animal Training Classes

Carroll University offers a 3-credit class in animal training which is taught at HAWS by Dr. Claudeen McAuliffe, Adjunct Faculty Member. This course is structured to provide an experiential venue for learning to use the methods and techniques described by theories of animal training. Students will assume the roles of trainers and behavior consultants as they work with animals and clients within the environment of a large animal shelter, applying Pavlovian and operant conditioning (instrumental learning) theory in activities germane to a career in animal behavior and training. The focus is on companion animal training and behavior modification, however, methods and techniques used can be generalized to non-companion species. For more information, please contact Dr. Susan Lewis, Professor of Biology and Marine Biology, Director of Faculty Development at 262-542-8851 or email [email protected].
