When I thought about writing this article, I wanted to be able to include videos so that you could see training in action. I didn't have to look long before I found Nina Faust and her two well-trained alpacas in a variety of youtube videos.
Nina uses a clicker, positive feedback commands and treats to train her boys. She has done a lot with her alpacas and makes it seem really easy. I'm sure that this has taken her many hours of patience, love and determination but you can see that it has definately "paid off".
As for my alpacas, I think they have me really well trained. Having said that, as warmer weather approaches, I might try some of the ideas that Nina presents in these videos. I'll keep you posted on any progress that I make. In the meantime, enjoy looking and thank you to Nina for all the hard-work!!!
