I’ll be presenting at the Pet Professional Guild Australia conference in Sydney which runs from 14-16 June.

The conference takes place at Rydges World Square in Sydney, with some practical workshops on the 14th at St. Ives Showgrounds.

My talks will be on:

  • From fearful to happy: The role of emotions in animal welfare.
  • Counterconditioning: How to get it right.
  • How to prevent and resolve common behaviour issues in cats.
  • Strategies for the human side of fearful/reactive dogs
  • Puppy and cat playtime and enrichment: why it matters.
  • Changing minds on training methods. 

There’s a great line-up of Australian and international speakers at this conference, including Dr. Robert Hewings, Barbara Buchmayer, Deb Millikan, Jari Castle, Dr. Eduardo J. Fernandez, and Alex Matsoukos.

There is a cocktail party on the Friday night and a conference dinner on the Saturday night.

As well as the conference, I am looking forward to doing some sightseeing in Sydney, including seeing the Opera House, visiting the botanical garden, and going to Bondi Beach.
