Training Basics

Join us to learn about positive reinforcement training used at Toronto Humane Society, and how you can use these skills to teach your pet something new. In this webinar you will learn about the basics of learning theory and training. We will share demonstrations that will primarily show dogs and cats, but these theories and skills can be used with any species.
