Louise McKenna

Team Leader Brooklands Zoo, NZ

Just spent 2 days learning animal training the ZooSpensefull way! It was such a valuable 2 days! Easy to understand presentation style, with a strong emphasis on establishing and maintaining simple but strong foundation behaviours. Our team came away feeling inspired, energised and excited to move forward with their training, which will directly enhance our animals welfare. Thank you Zoospensefull for a great 2 days!

I first met Peter while we served together on the executive board of the International Marine Animal Trainers’ Association (IMATA). He brings the same energy, behavioural expertse, and sense of curiosity to the Zoospensefull team. Zoo and animal professionals around the world have benefitted from their informative website and training workshops.

Sarah Chirico-Wyss

zoological director at Namsskogan Family park.

Namsskogan Family park was lucky to be part of a research project on training wolves where ZooSpensefull was involved. Peter helped us to get a good start with a training method which was new for us. That was so inspiring that we visited him at Kolmården in Sweden. He managed to change the zookeepers mindset within few sessions and get them engaged in positive animal training. Peter's dedication and passion for his job is unique and rarely seen. He is a very good teacher and coach and fluent in several languages which makes communication very easy. His positive mindset is contagious and he is extremely good in including everyone in the training thoughts. We decided to book him as a consultant for building up the training system in our park and are looking very much forward to starting that collaboration. We can also highly recommend him for training pets.
