Angelica‘Now the flock are truly settled into the community, we have begun clicker training them. This is a form of Positive Reinforcement Training, commonly used on pets. It is also a widely used method in Zoos and across many species. The clicker training is all in preparation for letting the sheep out of the pen, on halters, to mow the grass. All this does however take its time, especially with Angelica’s enthusiasm for attention and treats. Alongside this, we are teaching them a few little tricks which you may have seen us practicing.’
You can meet Angelica, Audrey and Urban and watch a sheep training demo at the Marlpit Community Garden Open Day tomorrow.
