Animals in Control & Seamless Training - From one Reward to the next

2 Days Workshop - ibh Anerkennung ist in Arbeit

Date: 16/ 17. Mai 2020  from 9.00 - 16.30 

Der Workshop wird von Yesim Bilz ins Deutsche übersetzt und dies so, dass es die englischen Abläufe nicht stört!


As positive reinforcement trainers, we work hard at building relationships and creating partnerships with our animals. But there can be a huge difference between simply gaining an animal’s cooperation and giving the animal true choice!

Trainers Eva Bertilsson and Emelie Johnson Vegh have explored these concepts in vastly different scenarios, and have held a wildly popular Animals In Control presentation together with Californian trainer Peggy Hogan at the past years’ Clicker Expos.

This lecture will teach you various strategies designed to help open the conversation with your learners. You'll get lots of inspiration and ideas along side many practical tips on how you can use your trainer skills to develop a two way communication with your animal. Individuals of many different species can for example learn to specifically ask for what they want, answer yes/no to questions and choose between different options. We can also hone our training procedures, when for example working with counter conditioning, by letting the individual direct the process through ”start button behaviours” and ”stop button behaviours”. This presentation will inspire you to stretch the cross-species communication to new levels!



Positive reinforcement training is about setting up for success and making sure desired behaviors are followed by reinforcers, which strengthen the behavior in the future. That’s the bottom line of all training. So let’s zoom in on our positive reinforcement training sessions, and join Eva and Emelie in a deep dive into what really goes on from one reward to the next!
and look at all the small but significant details that make up the flow of training.


In this session you will learn how to work deliberately with small but significant details, paying attention to all the parts of the training loop and using them to create seamless training sessions. You will also learn how to use flow charts to  help you prepare for all the possible outcomes in a session, make it easier for you to make decisions, and clarify what actions you should take—and when.


Flow-charting will hone your training skills, make the training process cleaner and smoother, and keep you on track with the tools you use in your training. Once you start using flow charts, you will wonder how you ever trained without them!

This seminar will help you develop your own training sessions. Your planning will get better, your training will become smoother, and both you and your learner will enjoy the process even more than before!

Both days combines lecture, personal examples, videos and Q&A/discussion time.

Eva Bertilsson & Emelie Johnson Vegh

Eva and Emelie run the collaboration Carpe Momentum. Their goal is to help people acquire knowledge and skills in science-based, modern, humane, and empowering teaching strategies for the benefit of learners of all species. They teach seminars on the general principles of behavior and learning, as well as sport specific seminars, and coach trainers in the art of structuring great training sessions regardless of the venue or the species. Their book Agility Right from the Start was published by Karen Pryor Clicker Training (KPCT) in 2010. The book outlines Emelie and Eva’s philosophy and structured approach to training, making it a worthy read not only for agility enthusiasts. 


”E&E” are part of the Clicker Expo faculty. In addition, they are the first TAGteach faculty in Europe and they introduced TAGteach to Scandinavia in 2005. They offer consultations and workshops about applying positive reinforcement based strategies with human learners in all imaginable areas. 

Eva has a master’s degree in behavior analysis and is a board member of the Swedish Association for Behavior Analysis, and works to connect the communities - teaching behavior analysis to animal trainers, and teaching animal training strategies to behavior analysts working with people. She is also active in building a Fear Free™ veterinary care community in Scandinavia, and is the initiator and host of the Scandinavian CCC conference (where the three C:s stand for Choice, Control and Communication) .

Both Eva and Emelie have competed with several dogs of different breeds at a high national level in agility, obedience and rally-o. They also enjoy dabbling with freestyle, htm and nosework. Emelie does urban mushing with her dogs.
