Below is a link to a great conversation on “blab.im” between Lara Joseph & Dr. Patricia Anderson on animal behaviors, Anthropomorphism. Both Laura and Dr. Anderson birds, bird behaviors and and life with birds. Laura is an animal behaviorist and owner of The Animal Behavior Center in Sylvania, Ohio. The mission at The Animal Behavior Center is to serve as an international educational center to raise the bar in animal care-taking and ethics. The center does this through science based education, hands-on application, and observable use of environmental events and enrichment to modify behavior. Laura and the team provide a wide variety of services such as on-line classes, webinars, training, consultations, both on location and at the center. Our services are directed to companion animal owners and caretakers, zoos, wildlife educators, and those that have the passion to work close with animals. Our core values lie in teaching others the strength of the relationship people can have by interacting with animals through trust built with positive reinforcement training and applications in behavior analysis.
