People Who Talk To Animals

Donkey 101 & 102 E-Training Video On Demand trains the owner or caretaker how to train the donkey using words, (NOT CLICKER) facial expressions, energy, phases and endorphins. Endorphins can be a rub on the withers or a bite of a carrot. 

A study conducted at Harvard University by Gary D. Sherman and Jonathan Haidt says that people who like pets more than people and those who have a conversation with their pets on a regular basis are more intelligent and not a crack- head! Talk To The Animals Study

Training A Donkey With A Fence Pannel

Question & Answer,

Melody, I saw a video from a large Donkey Rescue Organization using a fence panel to tame donkeys. What do you think of this technique? Tina, OK.

Tina, I have seen the video. 🙁 Humans and Animals cannot learn when under the flight response. The donkey in the video is dangerous due to the flight response and being locked in the fence panel. The human is afraid for good reason. This is not the way to teach the donkey to trust the human.

Donkeys have photographic memories. Every time we step into our donkey’s world we are teaching something. Good or bad we are teachers.

Attempting to teach any human or animal when scared is impossible. The brain must be calm in order to learn. For humans and animals.

I prefer to train my students to learn donkey behavior, personality, signs of stress and relaxation, and how to set the donkey(s) up to learn and for success.

Learn how to keep the donkey calm and stop the pressure before the donkey is pushed into the stress zone of fighting or withdrawing depending on the personality.

Donkey Personality Introverted donkeys when pushed will lay down. Extroverts will rear, bite and kick. Both introverted and extroverted donkeys can stop moving their feet when stressed. The eyes are glazed over as they have checked out for a while.

Never betray a donkey, never ever hurt a donkey in any way. Never let a donkey see you the human leader watch while a human or animal hurts the donkey. The donkey will deem the human who did not stop the pain NOT A LEADER. Less is more; equine learn from the release of pressure. 🙂

Pellet Bedding – Add Water Donkeys Love Wood

 

Donkeys are wood eaters this is not cribbing:

*Donkeys are stoic will not show pain until it is to late.

*Donkeys love wood and will eat the pellets. The pellets expand in the tummy and can kill your donkey.

* Looking for wood pellets for bedding? Read the ingredients NO CEDAR.

* ADD WATER TO THE PELLETS, the pellets expand now your bedding is safe for donkeys.

Wow! The Pega Donkey

WOW!

What a beautiful animal! When we think of a donkey, we commonly imagine the classic Southwestern Burro or African Ass, but there are numerous rare and even exotic donkey breeds found around the world.

This is a Pega Donkey. Their country of origin is Brazil and that is where most continue to be bred today. Pega is considered a rare breed and the pure bloodlines are on the verge of extinction.

Pega Donkeys are known for being very docile, highly intelligent, agile and display tremendous dignity. The Pega donkey has an extraordinary gait and is traditionally used for breeding gaited mules.

*This Pega has a special clip that we assume is for show purposes.

GOD Bless You And Your Family Two And Four-Legged!

Not Trimming A Horse, Mule or Donkeys Hooves Is Abuse

ould You Like To Learn How To Train Your Donkey or Mule to Pick Up The Foot? Go to our store to purchase Donkey 101 & 102 Video On Demand.

“Any person who owns equine (donkeys, horses and mules) and does not make sure their hooves are being trimmed on a regular basis is abusing the equine. If you decide to own a donkey, horse or mule you must take the responsibility of regular hoof maintenance, vet care, worming, food, clean space free of feces, urine, shelter and good clean fresh water.”

Picking their hooves out is vital to optimum health and care of our beloved domesticated equine.Training tip – Picking their hooves clean and brushing the gunk out every day is one amazing training tool!  No different than brushing our teeth taking a shower every day it must be done.”
