Session Descriptions

Session #1 General Sessions

Session # 2 The A Track – An Academic Track

The A Track will feature national and international Academics introducing and discussing their research or reviewing the current literature in their field of endeavor. Each session will be scholarly in nature, breaking down a research subject, its data, findings, and recommendations. Presenters will hold high level qualifications in their presentation subjects, most often holding doctorates or in the final stages of their doctoral studies.  They will all work at a university or further education institute. We make no apology for the fact that this will be a strictly science based, academic stream only.

Session #3 The B Track - A Behavior Track

The B-Track is a behavior ‘how-to’ track featuring highly proficient, hands-on, mechanically skilled dog trainers who will, throughout their presentations give attendees a takeaway ‘how-to’ of their subject.  The scope of the How-To sessions will be narrow, and the knowledge available will be rich.  Attendees will leave a ‘how-to’ session with a comprehensive understanding of how the presented skill is trained and performed. Each presentation will include the title, a breakdown of the task skills, the required criteria, the goals of the task, the training steps to teach/train the skill and will also include explanatory videos.  Examples are: How to Counter Condition a Muzzle, How to teach a 3 skill behavior chain.

Session #3 The C- Track – The Consulting Track

The C-Track will cover consulting, marketing, and personal growth topics. This track is designed to support personal development and business growth skills. Topics may be academic in nature or may be operationally focused.  They may also include human resource subjects.
