Join Peggy Hogan in a captivating webinar titled 'Lessons in Practical Behavior Shaping' as she shares her expertise and insights on this fundamental training skill. With over 20 years of experience in the field, Peggy has dedicated her career to exploring the power of positive reinforcement and shaping behaviors without the need for any type of coersion or punishment. Peggy spent many years exploring how to use positive reinforcement to shape a wide variety of behaviors, at liberty with horses, with no whips, ropes or wands. This was done at a time when there were very few horse clicker trainers.

In this webinar, Peggy will unveil a treasure trove of techniques, personal recipes, and advanced concepts that she has developed throughout her extensive training and teaching journey. Through engaging discussions and practical demonstrations, she will illustrate how shaping plays a pivotal role in teaching cooperative care behaviors, delving into real-life examples that highlight its effectiveness.

Furthermore, Peggy will extend her expertise beyond the equine realm and explore how these techniques can be seamlessly applied to human learners. This webinar promises to provide valuable insights and actionable strategies for trainers, educators, and anyone interested in the art of behavior shaping.

Peggy Hogan has had several passions in her life, but the two most constant were the love of music and horses. She fell in love with horses at age three when her sister put her on a pay-per-lap pony ride in Griffith Park, Los Angeles. She started piano lessons and was in her first beginning recital at age four.

Throughout her adult life she has been a teacher of music, horses and their owners. The driving force behind her teaching and training is empowering the learner and more recently, the benefits of giving choice, consent and control to the learner.

Learning from clicker trainers of other species, Peggy has investigated ways to add more shaping, capturing, luring, and targeting to her clicker training for horses program. She explains and demonstrates that horses will offer complex behaviors freely if given the choice—behaviors that range from riding to horse agility to freestyle to medical procedures. Peggy has also worked with clicker training techniques successfully in the area of horse rescue.

Peggy is the founder of The Best Whisper is a Click, offering training to horses and the humans of the horse community in positive reinforcement-based training for the past 20 years. She has been a speaker at ClickerExpo conferences since 2013 and is a sought after speaker and workshop presenter.

Peggy has a master’s degree in psychology and is a Level 1 Certified TAGteacher.
