We’re proud to announce that Brad has been awarded the B.F. Skinner Scholarship to attend the Karen Pryor Academy for Animal Training and Behavior. The training scholarship was awarded after being accepted into the academy. The 6 month program includes a variety of onsite practical work with dogs, as well as one other species of the trainer’s choice, along with a curriculum designed and delivered by world-renown animal trainers and scientists. Enrollment into the academy isn’t automatic. After submission of an application, the candidate must provide personal and professional references, submit to an interview process and then wait for results of all references and interviews.
B.F. Skinner is the father of operant conditioning and Karen Pryor is the person who brought this science into the dog training world in the 80’s. Karen Pryor is recognized internationally as a leader in animal behavior and pioneer of force free training of all species. The staff of Cold Nose College is always seeking higher education in the world of animal behavior and training and is proud to be able to bring this body of knowledge and these techniques to the people and dogs and cats of the tri-state area of North Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee.
