Cesar Milan Virtual Training
Our second webinar, for a special Thanksgiving celebration, was with renowned dog trainer, Cesar Millan. Cesar Millan’s Virtual Parent/Teacher Training was conceptualized to engage caregivers and educators on the importance of the animal/human connection within the home and classroom. Cesar spoke on teaching to the whole child; bridging social emotional learning with humane education. Through the use of exercise, discipline, and affection a child’s mind, body and spirit will be enriched, enabling the next generation to be calmer, confident, and loving towards one another. Better Humans. Better Planet.
