We are excited to announce that we will be hosting a 2-day Animal Enrichment Workshop on-site at The Animal Behavior Center. 

Animal Enrichment Workshop
- May 4, 2018 - Welcome Happy Hour, Location TBD
- May 5 & 6, 2018
- The Animal Behavior Center, LLC 4917 Alexis Road, Sylvania, OH 43560

This workshop will be informational and action-packed with several break-out sessions each day. Break-out sessions will involve making enrichment, building complexity in enrichment, observing animals interact with enrichment, incorporating enrichment through enclosure design and more. In between sessions, Lara Joseph will be presenting on the role enrichment plays in changing behavior, behavior issues, confidence-building, scientific studies, and how enrichment effects the mental and physical health of animals in our care. This workshop will focus on all animals and will be relative to our companion animals at home, to zoos, wildlife ambassadors, and shelter animals. You will be able to see how we use and design enrichment for all resident animals at the center.

Each day will begin promptly at 9am and run until 4pm. Lunch will be provided. Seating is limited. Contact us if you have questions.

The workshop will take place in numerous areas of our 10,000 square foot, grassed-in center. During the workshop, different animals will be running and flying around so we can see and experience how enrichment effects animal behavior. This will be a unique and unforgettable experience for all.
