Description

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. 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.
