A nationally recognized speaker in veterinary behavior and Fear FreeTM Approved Speaker, Amanda enjoys teaching veterinary team members how to implement and develop behavior care as a team. When not at work, she enjoys hiking, reading, and hanging out with her husband Scott, their 2 German Shorthaired Pointers (Brego & Moose), and the family clowder.
Unleashing Team Training Success
When it comes to training, timing matters! Animal behavior expert Amanda Schwarzwalder is taking her extensive knowledge of animal behavior and has applied it to create successful training techniques that lead to positive outcomes for her team. She will share how she implements timely feedback, breaks down complex tasks into smaller, manageable ones to support collaborative learning, and creates optimal training environments. This interactive workshop will help you find time for training and make that time as effective as possible.
