HERE’S THE COLD, HARD TRUTH…
This comes down to misconceptions about pet enrichment activities. Enrichment is a powerful tool that offers more than entertainment, variety, or a way to keep your pet busy.
If used strategically, these activities can help you achieve training results faster, make pets happier, and keep pet owners engaged throughout the entire process.
The issue is that most behavior consultants aren’t tapping into the true power of pet enrichment.
Most are using enrichment as another step in the plan instead of using it as the plan itself.
“I put [the Enrichment Master Class] on par with Living and Learning with Animals. The thing I love the most [is] how you have given us the tools AND [Allie] and Emily have broken your process into small steps for us to learn exactly what we should do for the owners and their animals.”
“HOW EXACTLY DO I USE PET ENRICHMENT EFFECTIVELY FOR MY CLIENTS?”
Hodge-podging different techniques and throwing all your ideas at the problem won’t work. At least not as quickly or efficiently as you would like.
Instead, you need a strategic approach—a framework—that can be replicated with each case so you cover all the ground you need to while troubleshooting for each individual animal’s specific needs.
With our Enrichment Master Class, you’ll learn how to apply the Enrichment Framework to your clients’ training plans so you are equipped to meet their needs faster.
Even if you don’t have a lot of time to dedicate to continuing education.
TAP INTO OUR FRAMEWORK AND YOU WILL BE EQUIPPED TO…
THIS MASTER CLASS WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO HELP PETS WITHOUT NEGLECTING THEIR OWNERS’ NEEDS
Us R+, Force-free, or consent-based consultants are known to be a little extra. And I mean extra work, extra time, and extra effort for our clients.
And y’know what clients don’t want? Extra.
If we want LIMA methodologies to rule the pet training world and have more forceful or aversive methods fall by the wayside, we need to focus on meeting our clients’ and their pets’ needs—and meet them fast.
Most consultants know that enrichment is all about unmet needs but still struggle with fully embracing the concept. They tend to fall back onto the common “enrichment activities” mindset instead of seeing the connection between pet enrichment and behavior modification.
The Enrichment Framework is geared towards achieving outcomes quickly, using enrichment effectively, and taking unnecessary pressure off of pet parents.
This is what makes our program a game-changer for any pet behavior consulting career.
Allie Bender is a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant, Certified Professional Dog Trainer- Knowledge Assessed, and a Shelter Behavior Affiliate. She has been in the animal welfare industry since 2006 and professionally training since 2012. She is the founder and co-owner of Pet Harmony, co-author of Canine Enrichment for the Real World, and a national speaker.
While in the animal sheltering industry, Allie realized that her passion lied in helping pets with maladaptive behaviors. Specifically, she wanted to help prevent animals with rehabilitatable problems from being euthanized. She loves working with dogs and cats displaying stranger danger, resource guarding, and leash reactivity. Her favorite thing about working with pets and their people is seeing relationships grow and seeing harmonious households develop.
Emily Strong is a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant and Shelter Behavior Affiliate. She has been in the animal welfare industry since 1990 and has been a behavior consultant since 2008. She is the co-owner of Pet Harmony, co-author of Canine Enrichment for the Real World, and a national speaker.
Emily started working with animals at a young age and struggled with the notion that you have to hurt, scare, or intimidate animals to help them. When she discovered the behavior sciences and learned that it wasn’t necessary to do so– that we can care for emotional, mental, and physical health simultaneously– she plunged headfirst into animal behavior. Emily loves helping current and prospective behavior professionals and working with pet parents through our in-depth services. She enjoys working with all species.
“I was worried that some information wouldn’t pertain to me or that I wouldn’t “fit in” because I’m a dog trainer and not behaviour consultant. Once the learning started I realized that this course is appropriate for anyone working with dogs and their people to address behavioural wellness.”
Mindset shifts take time, patience, and work. It’s not enough to just *know* that enrichment means meeting all of an animal’s needs and not just coming up with more pet enrichment ideas. We need to be able to frame our consulting around this mindset if we’re going to use enrichment strategically. We need to not only recognize the power of pet enrichment for behavior modification, but make it the foundation of our behavior modification plans.
Laser focus can be great, but it’s not always great for a behavior modification plan. When we lose sight of the individual as a whole we can make our jobs– and our clients’ lives– harder.
Your client’s behavior modification plan needs to be like airplane oxygen masks: they need to put theirs on first before helping those around them. If we can’t meet our client’s needs, there’s no way that they can meet their pet’s needs. Helping them understand the connection between enrichment and behavior modification – and see it in action – is a great first step toward meeting their needs.
You can write the greatest behavior modification plan in all of history, but if your client doesn’t do it then it’s not that great at all. We can’t meet pet needs if we don’t make our plan sustainable for their humans.

“With COVID the last couple of years I wasn’t sure if I would ever return to pet owner consulting again. [This course] also changed that for me by again re-inspiring me to dust off those skills and I realized how much I do actually like it.”

Nope! If you think this course will help your career then you are invited and more than welcome to join!
No, this is a standalone course. Our book is full of theory, studies, and activities. But this course is all about implementation. So as long as you trust that we know what we’re talking about, you can go back after the course and read about the theory.
Not at all. Enrichment was originally developed in zoos for a wide array of different species. You can apply what you learn in this course to any species you work with.

We get that not all courses nor all teachers are for all students. If after attending live sessions or watching the recordings you don’t think that this is the right course for you, we will refund your money within the first 14 days of the course starting.
“I had invested in a lot of continuing education last year that was good, but I often had remorse about spending money on them afterwards so I was nervous to invest in this course. But [this course] has been one of the best investments in CE that I’ve made in my career.”
