The definitive guide to handling, training, and managing llamas and alpacas.

Learn to be the kind of person a camelid loves to be around and still get your management job done safely and efficiently.

If you already have Marty's first book, Llama Handling and Training the TTEAM Approach,referred to by many as the "Training Bible" then you will surely want to get the new testament! This is not a revision but a totally new book. Chock full of new techniques that Marty has developed over the last 10 years you will find this book absolutely indispensable as well as lots of fun to read.

This new book has detailed information on every aspect of camelid ownership- everything from wool to weaning and herding to halter fit. Chapters on Medical Herd Management, Herd Maintenance and Husbandry guide you through everything from the birth of a baby, to coping with emergencies, to assisting your veterinarian with medical procedures (reviewed for technical accuracy by both Dr. David Anderson and Dr. LaRue Johnson). Learn the Laws of Camelidynamics. Understand how your behavior is the key to training. Learn how physics, not force can help you accomplish previously challenging tasks such as injections and toenail trimming.

Whether you have 2 llamas or 200 alpacas this book is for you.

400 pages, hundreds of illustrations. Clever icons help you navigate through every aspect of training and caring for your camelid.

At over two pounds this big book is worth its weight in gold

About the Author:

Marty McGee Bennett brings a variety of experience and qualifications to her work with camelids, including a B.S. degree in Animal Behavior from the University of Georgia. In the years that Marty lived with llamas she also worked as a professional fiber artist, spinning, knitting and weaving primarily camelid fiber. After meeting Linda Tellington-Jones and learning of her TTEAM approach to handling animals in 1987, Marty turned her attention fulltime to training and handling camelids. Marty has conducted hundreds of clinics in North America and around the world including numerous trips to Australia, New Zealand and Europe. Her clinics, books and videos have helped thousands of llama and alpaca owners more fully understand, appreciate and enjoy this magical animal. Marty and her husband Brad, their dog Rocky and cat Toonces have recently sold their house in Santa Fe New Mexico. For the next few years they will be exploring North America in a motor home, while teaching clinics for camelid enthusiasts
