Pig training makes for an excellent model for all kinds of animal training, exotic and domestic. Watch Dorothy's progress from shy piglet to confident young pig.

Training a pig is no easy task. They are incredibly smart and can be very sensitive. Dorothy the pot-bellied pig cross came to us as a shy ten week old piglet and we have been working with her with positive reinforcement to build her confidence and trust in her trainers.

Pigs have some remarkable qualities that allow for fast learning and are a great model for training many species. Follow along Dorothy's learning journey, learn how we navigate challenges and decide when to move forward and when to take a step back.

You'll have access to a suite of training goodies in this Masterclass.

I took Hillary's webinar on parrot hormones. She is a wonderful teacher clear, knowledgeable, and authentic. I learned so much and put into play the information she so generously shared. I had improvement in my birds behavior within one week. They are happier, I am happier, their diet has improved, their environment has improved and all of our quality of life has improved. I HIGHLY recommend this webinar she so generously make available here on her website. Thanks again, Hillary, for sharing your experience and knowledge.
