Day 6: Training Camels To Respectfully Walk on Lead

Camel Training


Welcome to Day 6 of our Camel Training Mini-Series where we, Russell & Tara teach short, insightful camel training lessons to help you get started with Camel Connection Trust Based Camel Training®, our signature camel training method designed to help you tap into the camel’s psychology so that you can better understand The Camel!


In This episode we are teaching you how to Train Camels To Respectfully Walk on Lead.


Given that camels are large animals (or will be if yours is only a baby), respectful leading is a MUST! You don’t want a 500+ kg animal trying to walk over the top of you or displaying their lovely long legs by showing off their bouncing skills.


The thing with camels is that they often don’t understand their size, sorta like the fable of the Elephant that is scared of a mouse, they don’t get the accidents and damage that their legs can cause – ESPECIALLY when they are in the ‘baby’ & ‘adolescent’ years.
