I founded AnimalSign Institute to scientifically study the effect and impact of intensive communication training on animals’ lives, brains, relationships, and well-being.
Projects train, demonstrate, and study (using ABA techniques) various techniques that enhance communication and bonding between animals , and other animals and people. Most are carried out under the AnimalSign Institute non-profit. We work with our own animals living on the ranch as family, and at zoos or sanctuaries.
