Occasionally @yuka_wolf_dreams will get hired as an animal actor for commercial shoots. This shoot was particularly unique in the behavior they requested. They wanted me to train Yuka to run up to a piece of glass and lick it on command. We could not put anything on the glass that would inspire her to lick it on her own, because it would show up on film and be too obvious. So I spent one week teaching Yuka to lick a screen on command. The video was done by @pixelfirefx for a hotel chain that will be projecting the video in their lobby. The concept is that Yuka is changing the time by licking the numbers off and back on again every few minutes. Watch till the end of the video to see me shaping the behavior prior to the shoot....cheesy music was added by myself using stock music to make the video more interesting to watch. 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 #dogtraining #puppytraining #impulsecontrol #training #traineddog #trained #smartdog #smartpuppy #learning #learningisfun #pdxdogtraining #pdxdogtrainer #portlanddogtrainer #huskywhisperer #yukaislearning #animalactors #dogactor #dogsinfilm #dogmodel #wolfy #noblewoof #rewardbasedtraining #behaviorsciences #animalbehavior #gooddog

Secret life of hens. Peeking in on Julia and company (boss hen) in twilight bedding down time, her true position in the coop becomes clear Making a chortling sound (not heard in daytime), she rounds up her minnions placing them to surround her for warmth. Cruella faces forward like a statue, Nina lines up to the right. After a few carefully placed light pecks she had them right where she wants them and burrows in under their downy feathers. Sadly shy Maggie ambles up the ramp, not part of the cool hen club (though by far she has the most magnificent feathers). Maggie eventually gets in only to sit by herself. How much like human nature these hens are. The chosen vs the ones left out. The dominant, the submissive, the bold versus the shy. Truth be told if we were to make comparisons I feel most like Maggie. Refusing to become Julia's minnion, or the target of her bossiness, she marches to her own hen music and sits determinedly apart. If I could translate I am sure Julia is saying "line up as I've shown you. This is not a drill (I'm fully convinced Julia has drills and runs the coop with military precision). She will, however, deny she ever did this, but I have the video.!! #hens #socialrules #bosshen #chickensofinstagram #birds #chicken behavior#cooprules #chickentales #animalbehavior

Ever think about wildlife on cold nights? Animals have a variety of adaptions that help them survive cold temperatures including a thick coat of fur for mammals.

Once upon a time a guy broke my heart so bad that I was done with photographing people. I was hurt and insecure. So for three months straight I only photographed cats. Even tho some people found it silly or stupid. It was good to focus on animal behaviour instead of the behavior that could break a heart. Now that I'm back photographing humans (and sometimes a cat) I've realised that there's an animal in all of us. We just need to be loved 🐈 #imadethis #portrait #malemodel #Cyprus #nomakeup #nofilter #naturallight #shotonlocation #animalshelter #alwaysadopt #nikon #hurtfeelings #brokenheart #human #cat #catsofinstagram #animalbehavior #picoftheday #dramatic

Can't trust anyone that won't let you sniff their butt‼️ Daddy0 also wanted to show off that Jack follows the walking rules of not peeing on gardens. Most human rules are pretty duuuuumb but I guess not killing plants is valid. I guess.

The first years have an entire one study day before finals start. GEB Henrietta thinks I should play with her plump toebeans instead of studying 😋 Hen is being raised to become a guiding eye dog for the blind-- it's a very long and work-intensive process that some veterinary students volunteer for. Can't wait to share my own puppy in the upcoming months 😭
Honestly, this is getting absurd. Now it's not antlers but a floofy santa collar. The hooman needs to find something else to do.

Teach animals what you want when they are young.

The constraints of human mind. . . Is an anthropocentric view to say these foxes are enjoying while they are playing? Are we projecting our own emotions and behaviour to other animals trying to understand them?.

A simple viste parece un árbol cualquiera, lo es? Mírenlo bien...y vamos a encontrar marcas, muchas marcas, más precisamente “arañazos”. Si, se trata de un árbol que los yaguaretés utilizan frecuentemente para “arañar” y así dejar su marca, y junto con con ésta un olor, y de esa manera poder decirle a otros individuos “acá estoy”...podríamos decir que es una suerte de “cabina telefónica” de yaguaretés! Cómo detalle: el árbol es un palo rosa y está en el medio de un palmital en el Parque Nacional Foz do Iguaçu en Brasil. #markingbehavior #jaguar #yaguarete #onçapintada #tree #peroba #perobatree #palorosa #rosewoodtree #iguaçufalls #iguaçunationalpark #parquenacionalfozdoiguaçu #mataatlantica #bosqueatlantico #atlanticforest #comportamientoanimal #animalbehavior #animalbehaviour #southamerica #brasil #brazil

Red-bellied Pitta (sound on), aka Blue-breasted Pitta, spotted at Kutini-Payamu National Park (formerly Iron Range) Cape York. This species migrates from Papua New Guinea 🇵🇬 arriving in Australia late November to breed during the wet season - when few people are around to see it. Males establish territories & call to attract females. Excellent spotting by Andrew & Holly, & great working & adventuring with them. We drove off the Peninsular yesterdayto avoid the cycle building in the Gulf of Carpentaria. #redbelliedpitta #bluebreastedpitta #birdnerd #birdsofinstagram #birdsofaustralia #animalbehavior #rarebirds #difficultbirds #pitta
Great tip on good play manners. 🐾💖 #Repost @lady_scalf with @get_repost ・・・ This is just a short clip from a 3+ minute long video of typical play between Boogie & Bruno. This kind of play might look concerning to some. Both of my dogs are terriers, there's a big size differential, LOTS of vocalization, and valuable toys in the mix. I'm a big believer in letting trusted dogs communicate with each other in the way that dogs do (i.e., better than people can ever hope to) and as the human I just try to keep up with what they're telling me to make sure everyone is having a good time. I recently learned a REALLY nifty acronym to help decipher robust play like this. MARS!

Rising star ⭐👌!! Most of our regular clients at Honeydew Animal Clinic will be very familiar with Christina, who is an allrounder here between the veterinary, nutritional and grooming sections.Well, she is currently hitting the next level within our practice, with some continued education. Christina is half way through a 12 month Coape Course (Centre of Applied Pet Ethology ). This course teaches students how to successfully run a dog training facility and also teaches how to improve the relationship between dog and human with positive reinforcement. This course is internationally accredited with worldwide excellence in pet behavioral education.Once completed Christina will be awarded a certificate from Coape international in dog training. She will then go onto Coape international's animal behaviour diploma.

@the_white_pup_wilson and his owner Kevin are doing a killer job practicing their loose leash walking skills. Wilson has trouble relaxing in his environment and becomes overwhelmed and overstimulated as soon as he leaves his house. This often results in uncontrollable barking and lunging on leash in response to any changes in his environment. Wilson is going through a counter conditioning and desensitization protocol with us to help change some negative associations that he has about the unknown. While we work to change his associations we are also working on training incompatible behaviors to barking and lunging. Loose leash walking with attention on the owner can go a long way in helping a dog to relax while out and about. Without calm and focused attention from the handler, we can’t expect calm and focused attention from the dog. So, we start with the basics so both dog and handler know exactly what to do, when to do it and how to do it. From this place of clarity and confidence both human and dog can progress beautifully! 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 #dogtraining #puppytraining #impulsecontrol #training #traineddog #trained #smartdog #smartpuppy #learning #learningisfun #pdxdogtraining #pdxdogtrainer #portlanddogtrainer #dogwhisperer #dogmodel #dog #noblewoof #rewardbasedtraining #behaviorsciences #animalbehavior #gooddog #walkandtrain #looseleashwalking #basicmanners #reactiverover #petsbehavingwell #looseleashwalking #heeling #looseleashwalking
Ok.. this is not abt being cute or adorable. I always try to show thru animals' behavior and how they react, a proof of what/how they think/feel compared to humans in similar situations. This seal was presented w a look alike beanie seal. Ofcourse the seal knows it's fake. Yet, what surprises me is its reaction!!! From the pics we can easily tell, not just it likes the newly found TOY, but also it's treating it very much similar to a kid when presented w a toy he/she would like.🤔.. Don't u ask urself sometimes what they could tell us only if they could talk??!!!! Deep down they r not much different!! Please treat them w love n respect.😍💕 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ @Regran_ed from➡️ @hilarious.ted - thanks💕 Real seal and beanie seal . . . . . #sealreactiontotoy #sealandtoy #beanieseal #cute #animals #higherthinking #animalshavefeelings #animalsdeserverespectandlove #animalbehavior #animalscanthink #sealvshuman #watchnlearn #mute #whatifanimalscantalk #animallovers #weareallthesame #deepdown #true #👀💓
Some animal behavior tidbits for y’all! Did you know that this head down tail up posture has been used in a lot of species of fowl to attract mates? 🧐What started out as a just a regular feeding posture turned into a complex signaling behavior through a series of elaboration and ritualization over evolutionary time!

Today I made the difficult but also extreeeeemely obvious decision to change my major from biology to behavioral science. I had to tell my advisor, who I like very much and I think is a wonderful professor, that I’ve been pretty miserable in the biology program (and in general) since coming back to school... but last week, when I realized my school even offers a behavioral science degree and I started looking over the curriculum, my little heart lit back up. He agreed that that’s a good indicator of this being the right move for me. I still love biology, but after a FOURTEEN YEAR on and off relationship, even this close to finishing, it’s been feeling a lot like whatever peta says we’re supposed to say instead of beating a dead horse. • I met the behavioral science program coordinator today too and I liked him, but he was quick to point out that this program has very little to do with the work I want to do with animals. I think it has everything to do with it, and will be the perfect foundation for future behavior certifications or possibly grad school. Human and animal behavior is not all that different - and from a cultural, social, and political standpoint you can’t really change what’s going on with animals without understanding what’s going on with humans. • ANNNYWAYSSSS. Really excited for next semester, and even though it means taking a few extra classes I’m 100% sure they will be more enjoyable than my original game plan. I should still be on track to graduate by next spring! 👩🏻‍🎓📚
Tongue rolling is a nervous behavior in cattle sometimes caused by early weaning, confinement stress or boredom, in which they do this to compensate for their barren environment (under stimulation) and poor welfare. In the wild, cattle spend 8-9 hours grazing on a daily basis. The animals in my video are clearly restricted from doing this. They are standing in their own feces and urine which creates muddy conditions and nowhere for them to graze. Some allowed me to pet them but most were frightened, probably due to the way they are treated at this location. Don’t support this by eating meat and dairy, go vegan 🌱 and set these animals free. #govegan #vegan #meetyourmeat #meatismurder #dairyisscary #cow #tonguerolling #animalliberation #dairy #vegansofig #milk #cheese #dairyfree #endanimalcruelty #crueltyfree #nomeat #nodairy #thesavemovement #saveanimals #friendsnotfood #animalabuse #animalbehavior #endspeciesism #bekind #animalagriculture

A doe coming down the path, exploring with sight and scent.  Near the end of the clip, she raises her head to listen and look in response to a bird calling nearby.  She is attentive, but not frozen, as she would be if the sound were a greater threat. ... This past week I've given everyone in the woods a little space (hunters and animals alike), so I haven't been out to check my cams.  This has given me time to look more closely at some of the videos I just zoomed by when I first checked my cards.  I've found beauty in some of those quieter moments, that can seem so uneventful when you just speed by them, but then come to life when you slow down and really look. ....

This dancing exhibition is called Kantling behaviour where the male kneels on the ground (sometimes standing), waving the head and the wings, and produce a subtle groaning noise. It is a courtship ritual and it meant to impresses the female but here he did it for @ZakiBin so he was extremely happy to see me 😁. #Ostriches are #flightless #bird #Ratite have#stronglegs and #bigeyes with #longlashes and have #twotoes They are fast and can run up to 70 km and like Camels they don't drink often. . . . . . . . . #Ostriche #Struthiocamelus #Kantling #wildlife #AnimalBehavior #Birds #Fun #FunnyAnimals #TakingaKnee #Kneeling #NFLkneeling #KneelToPropose #Veterinarian #VetlLife #Nature #DubaiDesert #inthedesert #BrainChild #desert #dubaidesert #animalsvideos #Finland @visit.dubai @dubai 🎥#ZakiAlGhumgham 📽️ @ZakiBin
