Sylvia Czarnecki – Positive reinforcement from the depth of the heart
My education, or: „Standstill is regression!“
In 2011 my book „It’s Showtime: Circus Tricks: Learning Fun for Horses and Riders“, which has become a standard work in the field of tricktraining. In 2016 „Honestly motivated – positive training with horses“ followed as a basic book for positive horse training (with and without clicker), which is my absolute heart project. I wish that every horse trainer and owner has this book on his shelf! Sadly, this one isn’t translated yet, but hopefully coming soon in english too!
I am currently the only certified member of the IAABC and may therefore call myself Associate Certified Horse Behavior Consultant of the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants – What a label 🙂 In the context of their core competencies, detailed and extensive knowledge in behavioral science / learning behavior, species-relevant knowledge, skills as a consultant and comprehensive, relevant knowledge of biology must be demonstrated. The IAABC has high standards of ethics and evidence-based (scientifically proven) methods, and subjects its members to close scrutiny. Im also proud member of the „Pet Professional Guild„, an international organisation for force-free and scientifically proven education.
Several times a year I attend classes and seminars with other trainers to develop my skills both theoretically and practically. In addition, there are webinars and online courses by world-renowned lecturers – unfortunately you can not experience all live.
These include, among others Viviane Theby, Katja Frey, Marlitt Wendt, Nina Steigerwald, Shawna Karrash, Mary Concannon, Bina Lunzer, Susan Fridman, Ken Ramirez, Kathy Sdao, Karolina Westlund / Illis ABC , Ryan Cartlidge -Animal Training Academy.
I’m looking forward to meeting you, yours Sylvia
