Teaching and Learning is For Everyone
The craft of teaching does not only apply to and for people. This is quite evident when a pet owner teaches his pet to sit or roll over or walk around hurdles.
But, the principles of teaching still remain: patient and repetitive participatory learning. Animals can't just learn tricks from one - time teaching and this applies to people too (well, perhaps a review will be more than enough).
But, what can be a major motivation when one opts to teach? It is in the knowledge that your students (animals or otherwise) get to comprehend your instructions and put this learning into action.
So, perhaps as teachers, we can just be loving and patient individuals as we impart learnings with our students.
