Our guest this week is Laura Gendron of Miss Behavior Training, here to discuss cooperative care, perfectionism, and memberships. Laura shares about her transition from the veterinary world into the training world, and then into virtual training and behavior consultations with a membership. We discuss the impacts of ADHD and perfectionism on cooperative care and other training, and include a few solutions about communication between veterinary staff and trainers. Join us to talk about realistic training!
