The training method used by Bernice is SATS (Syn Alia Training System). This is very much a two way method of communication that applies to all species. The technique avoids confrontation, promotes support, guidance and the celebration of success. SATS was founded and developed by professional animal trainer and manager, Kayce Cover. Kayce Cover has a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science. She has worked with many different species of animals, and applications related to welfare, enrichment, veterinary procedures, search and recovery detections, protection, theatre and more.
For more information about the method please take a look at the SATS website.
