Llama Handling and Training The TTEAM Approach

Book Cover - Llama Handling and Training: The TTEAM ApproachMarty McGee. Zephyr Farm Press.

For well mannered alpacas, read up on the Tellington Touch Every Animal Method. It requires you to spend a bit of time with your alpacas but the ideas in Llama Handling and Training, the TTEAM approach are sound and help you understand things from the alpaca's point of view. It can make a big difference to those annoyingly smart alpacas that just won't do what you want.
