Veterinarian, animal behaviorist and author Sophia Yin will visit the Stephens Branch Library in Davis twice this fall for separate speaking engagements.

On Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m., Dr. Yin will present “Pet Dogs, Problem Dogs and High-Performance Dogs: How the Science of Learning Can Take Your Training to a New Level.” Participants will learn how to harness the power of science in training.

“Operant conditioning is much more than a clicker and treats,” a news release said. “Many trainers believe they are using it, yet have an incomplete understanding of its nuances and potential. Find out how operant conditioning as a technology can be used to change behaviors faster and more reliably than ever before.”

On Saturday, Oct. 19, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Yin will present “Cats: Get Them to Do What You Want and Stop Doing What You Don’t Want.” Listeners will learn a simple two-step process for solving most nonmedical behavior problems, litter box problems and human-directed aggression in cats.

Both sessions will provide information for the general public and professionals, including trainers, rescue and foster workers, groomers, vet technicians and assistants, and shelter workers.

Yin works at San Francisco Veterinary Specialists, writes for several veterinary and popular magazines, makes animal behavior house calls and has consulted for several zoos. She also lectures and teaches workshops internationally on animal behavior and low stress handling, and has served as a behavior expert for television shows such as “Dogs 101” on Animal Planet.

She also is the author of numerous books and publications. Book-signings and sales will follow her presentations.

Both events are free, presented by the Yolo County Library. They will take place in the Blanchard Room at the library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis; the room is accessible for people with disabilities. No reservations are required.
