training rope

Halter Training/Catch Rope

This is a wonderful tool for catching your llamas/alpacas and teaching them to wear a halter. The catch rope is made of nylon marine rope with a solid brass hook hand spliced in one end with a brass ring attached to the rope. This training rope can be fashioned into a pre-halter that is easier for young or frightened animals to accept.
In combination with the Clip Wand, the Training Rope is a safe, non-threatening way to catch up your animal. The Wand Catch Method is explained in detail in The Camelid Companion. Colour: white.

clip wand

TTEAM Wands

These are invaluable tools for herding and sorting your animals. The wand allows you to touch and guide your camelid from outside his flight zone. By using the wand you won’t crowd your animals and make them nervous. Ideal for leading, teaching your llama to wear a pack and much more. They are especially useful for fearful animals. The fiberglass wand is 4’ long and white in colour for greater visibility. The wand’s balance and stiffness set it apart from other options and make it much more effective for training. The wand features a flat button on the end rather than a handle, excellent for scooping up dropped lead ropes. Two wands are used together for herding and sorting. We suggest one regular wand and one with the clip attachment (see Clip Wand below).

TTEAM Clip Wand

This attachment allows you to clip the catch rope to the wand for effortless catching. Small people with big llamas can level the playing field as no llama is too tall for this catching arrangement. Simply clip the catch rope to the wand and bring the catch rope up over the animal’s head, easily catching your animal in the loop as you bring the rope around the neck. You may find that catching with the combination of the rope and the wand eliminates many behavioral problems associated with other methods of catching

halter helper

Handler Helper

A very nervous and jumpy group of suri alpacas at an Advanced Clinic helped us create a brand new tool! The Handler Helper is a modified short length of nylon webbing with the double-ring system. The Handler Helper is a great way to halter animals when you no longer need the length of the Catch/Training Rope. It is also extremely useful when working with volatile animals. Use the Handler Helper in a half-Catch Pen with groups of weanlings. Makes a great stocking stuffer for your favorite camelid enthusiast. The Handler Helper comes in assorted colours

Here's a Step-By-Step…
The Handler Helper is a quick easy way to steady the head for haltering without putting your arm around the neck and threatening the alpaca. (Instructions written standing on the LEFT side of the animal, but can be reversed.)

  • STEP1:
    Start with the Handler Helper in right front pocket. Catch up the animal with Midline Catch and steady the head by lightly cradling the jaw.

  • STEP 2:
    Then, bring the clip-end up to the back of the neck just behind the ears with your right hand and drop the hook end into the hand cradling the jaw.

  • STEP 3:
    Connect the clip to the ring and adjust if needed (just like the Catch Rope) to ensure the Handler Helper is snug and high up on the neck.
  • STEP 4: Once the Handler Helper is on you can step back from your alpaca to give him a break and some room without losing contact nor having to catch the animal again.

  • STEP 5: Proceed to haltering...Voila!

herding tape

Herding Tape

This clever item, a lightweight white highly visible 1.25” nylon webbing, will reduce the cost of building lane ways and gates. Simply attach it to the corner of your paddock with the tension buckle, walk out with the tape, corral your animals and bring them in. Herding tape works best with a herding pole or TTEAM wand. It comes in a standard 45-foot length which works best for most applications, but special lengths are also available.

Neck wrap

The Neck Wrap

The long camelid neck makes balancing the head a challenge. The neck wrap is particularly effective with issues around the head; haltering, oral worming to name just two… but the good news doesn’t end there…if you have a llama or an alpaca that kushes, kicks, or is difficult to treat medically try the neck wrap. Last year while traveling in Australia I worked with a head shy llama that I thought would benefit from a body wrap but the body wrap didn’t work for a number of reasons. Necessity being the mother of invention… I just wrapped the neck instead with the body wrap. It worked like a charm. The llama settled down and accepted haltering much more easily. He also led better and stayed more focused. Since then, I have wrapped necks all over the place and the results are almost always dramatic. The really good news…the neck wrap is easy and safe for beginners to use.


neck wrap


To put the neck wrap on the animal, roll the ends of the neck wrap towards the center, begin wrapping from the base of the neck and end at just below the ears. Snap the fastex buckle at the top of the neck. There will be more space between the wraps on a larger animal but it doesn’t compromise the effectiveness of the wrap. The wrap should be snug, but not tight. When you remove the neck wrap make sure to keep both ends in your hands as you unwind the wrap. Dropping the ends could cause the animal concern if the wrap dangles around the front legs.

I have used the body wrap for wrapping the neck but the new neck wrap is much easier because it hooks without Velcro. In testing the body wrap for this new purpose we found that the noise of the Velcro up by the ears was problematic in almost every animal. This wrap is made of a thicker, stiffer, elastic material that is a bit narrower than the body wrap, all of these qualities increase its effectiveness when used on the neck. The new neck wrap is easy, quiet and safe.

body wrap

Body Wrap

Use the body wrap for calming excitable youngsters or adults. The body wrap is very useful for camelids that kick or for teaching the idea of restraint free toenail trimming. The body wrap is made from high quality elastic wrap with four velcro closures for size adjustments. Colour: white.

clicker kit 2

Clicker Training Kit

You can teach your llamas and alpacas all kinds of useful and fun behaviours AND the process of teaching these behaviors changes the relationship you have with your animal.

The pouch is perfect for carrots, hay, nuts or other treats, has a very sturdy french hinge and offers plenty of room. It is bigger and sturdier than most treat pouches designed for dogs and it is made specifically for Camelidynamics! The special mini feeding frisbee (two feeding dishes included) is the perfect size for the pouch but big enough to entice shy animals.

Included is what is probably the best clicker for working with camelids and a wrist coil. You can deliver a click with your thumb or for additional versatility with your foot.

The kit is available with a pouch of standard waistband size (fits waists up to 41) which will fit a majority of people and is highly adjustable or you can request an extra large (fits up to waist size 45) or extra small (waist size up to 37) each size features a great deal of adjustment.
