FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Getting your dog to sit and stay is hard enough, but zoo keepers at the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo train all of the animals for daily activities. These are activities like feeding, grooming, and for overall health. They train the animals using something called positive reinforcement. Jason Meyers watched some of the keepers in action today.

Check out the video for more.
