Training goats is an important task. Too many people get a cute baby goat and train it to do normal goat things that happen to not be very cute when the goat gets bigger. Butting, biting, jumping, yelling; these are all common baby-type behaviors and are really cute when the goat is little. Goats are much like children, though. If you want them to be good adults that can be around strangers and children, you have to take a firm stand and teach them from an early age to behave toward humans the way you want them to be as adults.
In the following video I am teaching our 6-year old to train the goat kids. This helps all of us. The goats get socialized, our son gets to be part of an important job, and the goats will turn out to be well-behaved and have a good foundation when they go to their new homes. I hope you enjoy the training ideas as I teach our son, as well as enjoying the cuteness of the baby goats and the running commentary from our son.
