In this edition of Genome Barks, we welcome Dr. Ed Breitschwerdt, a specialist in internal medicine and infectious disease at North Carolina State University. Dr. Breitschwerdt has received funding from the Canine Health Foundation for various infectious diseases including Bartonella spp. In this podcast, Dr. Breitschwerdt describes Bartonella, explains what clinical signs to look for in a potentially ill animal, and also discusses the various research projects underway.
In this podcast we hear from Kayce Cover, an animal behavior consultant and coach, about her approach to training. Syn Alia Training System, or SATS for short, is an extension of bridge and target training. Ms. Cover is a professional animal trainer who has a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science and a Masters of Science in Education. Cover trained as a research scientist, but prefers to work in applied communication and motivation – working to get results with people teamed with animals. Cover has worked for a number of highly prestigious institutions, including the Smithsonian Institution, and a number of universities. In this podcast she discusses her training methods and philosophy that have led to phenomenal success with multiple species.
