In partnership with Behavior Matters®, Inc. and Parvene Farhoody, Paws of Life will be constructing a training center. It will be a place where people can come together to learn behavior science AND its application across human and nonhuman species in an encouraging and supportive environment. Our commitment is to the consistent application of behavioral technology—filling the educational gap between the lab and field. Parvene will teach courses and will also work with respected teachers from around the world, skilled in their fields, to develop and teach courses that apply behavior principles consistently across disciplines, while fostering new and innovative research.

Among the amenities under construction are a 120- x 80-foot training building with classrooms, technical ponds designed by an environmental engineer, full-facility housing for students with a communal kitchen and gathering area to facilitate the exchange of ideas.

The training center and surrounding campus is coming to life on 520 beautiful acres of versatile land in the Midwest.  It will house Parvene’s White Leghorn chickens and they will be joined by other species including: horses, goats, cows, donkeys, sheep, and zebra among others. The hundreds of acres have been designed with function and efficiency to accommodate any training applications we may choose including but not limited to all levels/types of detection, field/hunt, sport, obedience, herding, protection, and courses to improve human performance.

If you would like to learn more or contribute to this facility, which is committed to advancing behavior technology, contact .  We would be happy to add you to our mailing list!
