Welcome to the podcast for alpaca people!
In this episode, I talk bout fear. Yours and the alpacas’.
Big fears – heights, fire etc are healthy and keep us safe.
Lower-level fears (like what people will think of us, what if we make a mistake, what if we don’t do the right thing) can debilitate, lock us up and cause us to disengage. Alpacas can get locked up too, or opt-out of situations. We can do things to cause this or minimise it. Things that can help our alpacas engage and be present.
I share some experiences from halter training some young males.
Learn to reduce fear in yourself and your alpacas.
