    Attention people teachers and trainers! Attention animal trainers! Your worlds are about to collide in a truly phenomenal way. Join us in scenic Seattle in July to learn from the best in both fields. Your skills and knowledge will jump to the next level when you hear what these visionaries have to teach you. The best lessons are taught to us by our students, and you'll hear about the insights that top teachers and trainers have gained from dogs, children with intellectual disabilities, whales, elite athletes, surgeons and more.

    If that's not enough awesomeness for one conference, you'll also be blown away by the technology available and in development to help with data collection, reinforcement, metadata-based decision making and more.

    This is an unprecedented opportunity to expand your horizons and find out what's going on at the leading edge of human and animal training. Expand your thinking and skills beyond the bounds of experience from working in one field. Sign up now to ensure that you get one of the 200 in-person spots.

    Theme

    We've asked our speakers to tailor their talks to our theme of the convergence of animal and human training. There is a lot that animal trainers can learn from human trainers and vice versa. Our human learners can (mostly) talk to us and tell us what they like and what they don't. They are more forgiving than animals in some ways and less forgiving in others. Our animal learners talk to us only with their behavior and so reading body language is an essential skill in animal training that human trainers can benefit from too. This is the first event of its kind which brings human and animal trainers together for the express purpose of aligning our practice, and that integrates leading edge technology both in the delivery and the subject matter. We're excited and we expect a fabulous response to this unprecedented event!

    Streaming and Live spots

    Can't make the trip to Seattle? We're arranging a livestream and recorded option as well.  This is available for those who would prefer to join online or can't make the travel to the physical location. We know there are competing events in everyone's life.  Additionally, it's quite impactful on the environment to travel and attend an event.

    As such, we've made sure that you can log in online and watch the events as they occur throughout the day. The livestream quality depends on the venue - so if you're signing up early, know that we guarantee the on-demand video 30-days after the event. We expect a high quality livestream at the zoo facility as they have top notch tech there.

    Each participant will also receive access to a recording of the event for 30 days only after the event. This will be a link to stream it to your device. We will not be sending out CDs. It's a perfect option if you're already committed when we're holding the live event but still want to join the community and movement. Each presentation will also come along with materials that allow you to immediately use the skills and create your personal action plan.

    PLEASE NOTE: you must register before the event to get access to the livestream and recording for 30 days. We will most likely not be selling the recording after the fact.

     

    *Streaming is best with a dedicated direct line. Although the event can be streamed through 4G and LTE and wireless connections, it's recommended that you plan to attend with a direct ethernet connection with at least 5Mb/s connection. We're glad to answer any questions about this at the contact information above. All attendees will receive a recording of the event as a part of registration. Data usages may apply and are your sole responsibility.
