We are new to the Alpaca scene and recently
purchased two male
alpacas, one for a 4-H project. Neither of them seem to have
had much training, although they have been haltered, they are
not easily led or easy to catch. I know this is fairly normal
for Alpacas who don't have much training experience.
question is how often should I catch them and work on a lead
with them? They both seem to get pretty stressed during the
catching process and while on the lead. I have not had much
experience with these animals; however, I have been around
horses all my life and was under the impression that halter
training would be somewhat similar. What can I do to make
haltering easier and once they are haltered what can I do to
make the experience pleasant for them? Thanks for any advice
you can give me. I am also purchasing you book called "The Camelid Companion" in hopes of learning more information.
