If you're a force-free behavior consultant

you've already heard that

enrichment is a necessary part of your client's behavior modification plan

But here's what you might NOT know:

even if you're incorporating enrichment into your plan, using it to solve behavior problems isn't as obvious as you may think

Our Enrichment Framework Can...

Solve behavior problems faster

Unmet needs can cause and/or exacerbate maladaptive behaviors. By focusing on those needs first, we can create conditions that help our animal learners learn better and faster!

Get clients on board from the get-go

Our framework focuses on all learners involved: human and animal. By creating quick wins for our clients, we can get them on board from the get-go to make better progress.

Let you work smarter, not harder

Frequently we have clients tell us that they only had to focus on the “enrichment” part of their plan in order to meet their goals, instead of working on complicated behavior modification strategies. This keeps clients happier and boosts our referrals!

Keep your clients coming back to you

Happy clients come back! From making sure their needs are being met to helping them reach their goals in a more efficient way, our enrichment framework helps you meet everyone’s needs. That means more referrals, more clients, and ultimately more money!

Enrichment is so much more than entertainment, variety, and keeping them busy

But how do you implement the Enrichment Framework into your clients' behavior modification plans?

If you want your clients to get better results faster, there are a lot of factors that come into play. And strategically using a framework instead of hodge-podging a lot of different techniques together will help you do that.

The fact is most behavior consultants aren't tapping into the true power of enrichment

Even the consultants who know that enrichment is about unmet needs still have a hard time truly embracing the concept instead of falling back onto the common “enrichment activities” mindset. This means that they’re using enrichment as another step in their plan, instead of using it as the plan itself.

Here's why that can be a massive problem:

R+, Force-free, consent-based consultants, whatever you want to call us, there’s a stigma that we can be a little extra. And I mean extra work. Extra time. 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 and/or aversive methods fall by the wayside, we need to start focusing on meeting our client’s and their pet’s needs and meeting them fast. And all of that is part of the Enrichment Framework. 

4 reasons most behavior consultants struggle to implement enrichment strategically

01

Difficulty moving past the "enrichment activity" mindset

Mindset shifts take time, patience, and work. It’s not enough to just *know* that enrichment means meeting all of an animal’s needs. We need to be able to frame our consulting around this mindset if we’re going to use enrichment strategically.

02

Too focused on treating the problem, instead of the individual

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. 

03

Not focused on the client's needs

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.

04

Not focused on client sustainability

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.

Force-free consultants aren't really known for putting their clients first. And that just sends people to aversive trainers.

Meeting pets' needs also means meeting client needs.
