Camel Training Lies and Myths

Like any animal handling and training there can be a lot of misconception on how animals are trained and handled.


Camel training is not excluded from these conversations. 


People who ‘don’t know camels’ are always amazed how we can LOVE camels and love training and handling them. Their perception is often one of what most media (i.e. movies) portrays which is, camels are aggressive, short tempered, suborn and quick to bite and kick. 


There is some truth to these assumptions, but in this episode of Camel Training Myths and Lies we chat about the truth behind the truth.


We discuss three prominent myths:


  1. Men are better at handling and training camels than women 
  2. Dominance is necessary for training & handling camels
  3. Camel’s are quick to be aggressive, stubborn and defensive


Tune in now as we de-bunk these lies and myths, give actual truths from years of experience with camels (and people) and don’t forget to join the conversation in the comments below.
