A letter from the desk of Ryan Cartlidge
This isn’t just any old episode of the ATA podcast, we are celebrating approximations on this one; because this is episode 100 of the show!
I remember when I first started recording this podcast. At that time I thought to myself 100 episodes seemed like a nice number to try and achieve and 3 and a half years later – here we are!
Via the guests on the show we have travelled around the world – speaking to the world’s most proficient animal training & behaviour professionals from a large number of different industries and working with an extensive amount of different species. But most importantly all of our guests have been singing the same song – striving to work with our learners in the most positive and less intrusive ways!
So I am absolutely thrilled that the special guest for episode 100 is the person who first taught me about the concept ‘most positive, least intrusive’. Someone who has helped guide me for a decade as well as help guide so many others from around the glove – Dr Susan Friedman herself.
Thank you for listening to this show and playing your part in changing the world one episode at a time!
