Affection Training

I recently read a book titled “Modoc” by Ralph Helfer which is a true tale about a famous elephant and her beloved human.  Both born on the same day, they were twin souls….sharing a life of unbelievable depth.  Their story is a glowing testament for “affection training”…a technique that uses kindness, affection and love as a way to not only train animals, but to develop the kind of inter-species bond that is available to us all.

I think the reason animals and humans respond so positively to affection is because it is one of the highest expressions of love.  A gentle touch, a warm hug, a soft stroke or a quiet hand on the shoulder speaks louder than any word ever will.
