DogEvent 2017 will take place in Rambouillet, at the national sheep farm (Bergerie Nationale) inside the Rambouillet castle park (45 min away from PARIS), from April 14th to 17th 2017. The two coordinators of this project, Perrine Hubert and Benjamin Bonhomme, have invited 8 reknown conference speakers: Emily Larlham, Chirag Patel, Nando Brown, Jo-Rosie Haffenden, Denise Fenzi, Lori Stevens, Jean Lessard & Nancy Tucker. Our objective was to put "practice" at the center of the event, focusing on practical skills of our trade, those that will help us in our daily activities as a dog trainer. The conferences and workshops will be filled with precious advice on making our lessons come alive and bringing them to the next level of excellence. Motivation, Relationship, Loose Leash Walking, Targeting, Olfaction, Fitness, "Aggressiveness", "Resource Guarding", TTouch, "Separation Anxiety"... These many topics will be addressed by international experts.
