Gaby Dufresne-Cyr Speaker

I've been teaching animal behaviour, animal training, and animal-assisted therapy at our local college and in my private institution for nearly 10 years, and I love every minute of it. My specialities as an animal behaviour consultant and cognitive-neuroscience student are inter-species communication, social cognitive learning theory, attachment, advanced problem-solving skills, and exotic animal husbandry training. 

The conferences, seminars and workshops I give are filled with demonstrations, examples, practice, photos, video, questions, and animal kisses. Each event is adapted to satisfy your particular needs; therefore, these events can last from a few hours to a weekend, or last as long as required.

The choice of conference, seminar, or workshop will depend on your expectations and requirements. The subjects most often covered are listed below in alphabetic order. Should you have other topics in mind or wish to combine topics, no problem, I can create a specific program for your event. Simply mention your event in the subject title of your email.

I must say, without boasting, that my presentations are very dynamic. Since I don't like to stand in one spot for very long, I tend to move and gesticulate a lot. Plus, if I need to get on all fours to demonstrate a behaviour or concept, I will. I'm a passionate extroverted person which means my presentation are well adapted for visual, auditory, and kinetic learners.

Below, you will see an excerpt from a conference presentation on wolf animal-assisted therapy given during the ABMA's week conference on animal behaviour management (2017). The second excerpt is about Park Safari's new fennec fox ambassador presented on CityTV's Only in Montreal television show (2013).

Please note that prices will vary according to the length of the seminar, venue, and travel accommodations. If you wish to organise an event please send your inquiries to Dogue Shop. For more information on my experience, you can visit my page. I like to teach and would be honoured to share my knowledge with you.
