So I've decided to start training my mallard drake Odette to be a therapy animal. I feel that ducks could make amazing therapy animals as they're intelligence is close to that of a dog and they are very affectionate animals. Odette is a little over 5 months old now and he's be handled and taught commands since the day he was born so I feel his up to the task. I'm currently researching the requirements of therapy animals which is difficult considering all I find is for dogs so its going to take a little while to figure out what he needs to learn but I have started teaching him to walk on a leash. I was wondering if any one has any tips for training him to like stay when told or tips on leash training. I'll update on his progress as its made. Thank you for reading!
