Welcome to JesseMcClure.org. I offer consulting for pet owners, researchers, or anyone interested in exploring, understanding, or changing behavior patterns in non-human animals. I offer training services for pets and for behavioral research laboratories. I also design, build, and program affordable customized testing equipment for behavioral research. Alternatively I can craft software to aid in the efficient processing and analysis of data from existing equipment.
The affordable tools I create for research will lower the cost of tax-payer funded science, while also allowing beginning scientists, or even hobbyists and citizen scientists, to dive into an exploration of animal behavior. I hope this may also allow the interested trainer — whether pet or service animal trainer — to combine their expertise based on many centuries of trade-craft with the experimental control valued by the scientific community. I further hope that the academic behaviorists and the trainers may learn from one another and be able to build a common knowledge-base on the topic of interest we share: animal behavior.
My combined backgrounds in applied animal behavior, ethology, and technology can be applied to fit the individual needs of researchs and pet owners:
