We are a group of trainers and other animal professionals interested in the pursuit of humane and positive training. We use the principles of learning theory to manipulate and reinforce selected behaviors while using the least intrusive and minimally aversive techniques. The principle can be used on all kinds of species including us.
SBT is a network of animal professionals committed to humane and positive methods. The group was founded in 2003 by Daphne Robert-Hamilton. We continually pursue ongoing educational opportunities to improve our skills and expand our knowledge.
