By the time this is published, I hope to be fast asleep on a Northwest Air jet, sleeping my way to Portland, OR. The dogs have been safely delivered to Lake Anna where they will vacation until I return. They probably won't even know I'm gone. Meanwhile I'm pining away without them.
I'm headed to a sold out Clicker Expo, where I'll be giving a talk to dog trainers. I'll also be learning. A LOT! Here is a sample of some of the talks at Clicker Expo:
- Smart Reinforcement
- Total Targeting
- Vexing Training Issues and What to Do About Them
- Learning Games and Play for Dogs
- Clicker Research
- Six Powerful Strategies Get You Through Training Blockages
- Training that Heads Off Behavior Issues
- Concept Training: Copycat? Copy Dog!
- Punishment and the Public
I'll be bringing all the great ideas from Clicker Expo back with me. I'll also be Tweeting from the conference. Follow me on Twitter: @smartdogu
