Private, Customized Pig Training for Potbelly, Juliana, and All Pet Pigs
Pigs aren’t dogs.
This may seem obvious, but trouble often starts when people treat and train their pigs as if they were dogs. Although the methods are similar, pig training requires a very different approach, keeping the animal’s unique needs, instincts and behaviors in mind. Otherwise, it’s all too easy to end up with a squealing, biting, peeing, out-of-control pet pig.
Laura has been training pigs since 1989 and has given seminars on the training and behavior of pigs and how to enjoy a positive relationship with them. Using positive, humane, highly effective techniques, Laura can help bring peace to your household whether you have a new pig or one who has been a member of the family for a long time.
Offering private pig training sessions in the comfort of your own home anywhere in southern California (a travel fee may apply), or for those out of southern California she can help you via webcam. Animal Attraction Unlimited can address ongoing behavioral issues or prevent them before they ever occur. You will receive personal, one-on-one attention at times that work for you. Each session is customized specifically to your needs, focusing on the areas you feel you need the most help.
Harness Training a Pig
Here I’m teaching Fidget to stand still while I put the harness on. Many pigs squeal or try to back up during the process, making it a struggle for many people to harness their pig. By having a mat for him to stand on it helps him focus on what is required. If he moves off of the mat he doesn’t get rewarded, and if he moves around while I’m putting the harness on he doesn’t get rewarded.
This is only the 3rd time we’ve worked with the harness but he’s clearly getting the idea of what is required. This is a very old harness so the neck piece is a solid loop. The new harnesses have a quick release for the part around the neck because most pigs don’t like the harness coming off over their ears.
Private Pig training in your home or Via Webcam can address many common concerns, including:
Litter Box Training
...and many others
How It Works
If you’re ready to have a happier, healthier, better-behaved pig, it’s quick and simple to get started.
Simply call Laura or send a message through the contact form.
Laura will get back to you in order to gather more information about your pig and situation. Then, you will discuss training, pricing and optional discounted packages.
If you decide to take the next step, Laura will set up an appointment to meet you and your pig in your own home or via the web if you are out of the Southern California area.
During this initial appointment, Laura will assess your pig’s behavior and work with you to put together a training plan that is customized specifically to your needs and goals.
Laura does not charge for multiple pigs, and you are never required to commit to a certain number of training sessions or buy a large package. If the issue is simple, one session may be all that is necessary. Laura is focused on you, your pig, and what you need to be successful.
