Dr. Jordan Carlton Schaul‘s balanced programs for companion canine obedience training evolved through his effort to enhance the quality of life for wildlife in human care, including a diversity of imperiled animal species from elephants and sea lions to rhinos, and non-human primates.
With both informal and formal training in animal cognition/cognitive ethology and the behavioral ecology of a diversity of species, Dr. Schaul by default, and sometimes with intention, integrates applied and practical academic disciplines that served him as a zoo professional and as an exotic animal trainer working with wildlife in human care.
Dr. Schaul’s approach to managing the behavior of companion animals, (e.g., dogs, cats, avifauna, etc.) or alternative livestock, fundamentally involves helping interested clients develop an appreciation for what motivates their furry or feathery family members to behave in ways we want and ways we don’t.
If a client prefers simply to meet basic objectives of obedience for a canine companion, Dr. Schaul tailors his private curricula to the presenting client-animal relationship. If more than just a basic understanding of operant conditioning is requested, the program is designed to offer as much depth as may be requested by the client. Dr. Schaul’s training programs are designed to permit efficient and proficient learning within a realistic framework and with consideration of time, lifestyle and financial resource constraints.
Jordan has recently partnered with Los Angeles-based BlueCollar Working Dog—the only interactive pet store and companion animal retail outlet and dog training facility in the world to develop a unique curriculum.
The course is expected to be launched for general participants in January 2018. It will cater to pre- and post- graduate non-science majors and anyone 18-years-of-age or older and interested in a short course on wild and domestic canine behavior as it applies to training companion dogs.
