The project on short-term memory in pinnipeds began when Dolphin Adventure, to increase the motivation and concentration of animals, trained each and every one of its individuals to perform the behavior, which we will call "repeat". This behavior consists of a signal or SD that basically means "repeat what you just did".

Team communication


The union of a group of people to achieve a common goal is what we know as “team communication”.

For an effective communication, it is necessary to know how to listen, not to have a unique reality and whenever possible, to reach a common agreement in the decisions.

In our case, the purpose is to ensure the care and handling of the animals under our care to ensure their welfare.

Maybe at some point you’ve asked yourself this question, and it’s that sometimes without realizing it some behaviors begin to decay, or the animals begin to directly refuse to do them. In these cases, it is important to be observers, and to perceive the root of the problem, because sometimes the cause may come from a precursor that we have not perceived.

In order to ensure a high standard of animal quality of life, it is necessary to understand the welfare factors, not only of a single species, but of each individual.

Nowadays, it is important to know the origin of animal training and see how it has evolved. In this article we will explain, most truthfully and briefly, how it all began, focusing exclusively on modern training.
