  3. DWA Species
    Hi, I'm looking for some more information on Gila Monsters and the DWA application process from anyone who has experience with them. I've absorbed everything I can find on them including Daniel Beck's book, all the videos online and the posts on this forum. I don't feel there's much more I can...

    Just wondering if anyone here trains their lizards, or any other reptiles, as for some reason, while captive mammals and birds are regularly trained, reptiles seem to be over looked in this aspect. This is far from a unique idea, the Komodos at London Zoo for example are target trained, but it...
  7. DWA Species
    Hi, I am currently looking to see if there is any interest in a venomous handling course, which would be run in the field in India and certified by a recognised and licensed European Zoo. This course would be aimed at both those looking to work in the field of herpetology and for those who...

    Hi, I'm doing an assignment which is an investigative project on training lizards. I need to get some examples of people training their lizards and it would be even better if there was some evidence to go along with it. It doesn't matter if it's a monitor, iguana etc. Also any information on...

    We are fostering a lab/collie cross for a gentleman who was undergoing surgery. We've had her since around Easter time and we thought she'd be going back last month but her owner is unfortunately still too unwell to take her back. We've had her at classes which focused on positive...

    Hi all I'm hoping to become a puppy walker for Guide Dogs UK in the following year (just in the process of checking that they'll allow me to with a pet skunk in the house, fingers crossed!). I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations of books about raising and training puppies that would...

    Hello. I would like to ask if anyone have succesfully teached a skink to defecate in a certain place? I had a Green Iguana before and I've teached her, first, to poo in a concrete place and second, at the time I put her there saying "poo". I own a four month old Tiliqua scincoides...

    I am always trying new things to keep my animals happy and stimulated. With my dogs it has always been easy. They are eager to train, play, go places, and learn new things. We have built agility equipment, trained them to use a treadmill (a blessing on cold midwestern days), and more. However...
  13. Snakes
    Hi, I have a two year old amel corn snake. He is my schools old snake. He has become a bit defensive recently. He has always been a bit viv defensive because when he was at my old school he was hurt with a ruler and handled a bit roughly. So he has always been a bit defensive because of this...

    So about a month ago I got 2 rats. A plain, brown one, Freyja, who has settled in fine and is doing splendidly. She lets us pet her and she's fine. However, the other one we got, Nixie, is a white and grey rat with dark red eyes, so we think she may be slightly blind, or have sight difficulties...

    Has anyone here got any advice/experience target training reptiles? I've had conflicting advice about whether to allow them to associate me with being the food provider. I've heard of monitors/tegus being trained using a target to help them turn on/off their feeding response. I had been...
  18. DWA Species
    Hi everybody, so with any luck I should be licensed and ready to go for keeping hots this summer :2thumb: so I'm wondering if there are any keepers near me who would be willing to show me a bit and advise me on keeping hots so I'm not throwing myself in the deep end. I'm not a complete...
