Following on from the resounding success of the 2018 Training and Behavior event in Kanab, UT, held at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, PPG promises another specialized and unique educational offering planned for 2019. With internationally acclaimed presenters, superior accommodation options, and a much-needed seminar focus on aggression and bite safety this event promises to be spectacular.
This 2019 seminar will take place at the Crown Plaza, downtown Portland. Attendees will benefit from all-day general sessions supported by an afternoon feline specialty track. Sessions focused on the Neuroscience of Aggression, Functionally Assessing Aggression, Resource Guarding, Aggression Modification Protocols, Techniques, Managing clients with Aggressive Pets and much more will be presented by Dr. Lisa Radosta, Dr. Nathan Hall, Dr. Ilana Reisner, Pat Miller, Chirag Patel, Niki Tudge, Judy Luther, Janis Bradley and David Pearsall. Heading up the Feline track are Paula Garber, Francine Miller, Beth Adelman and Tabitha Kucera.
This event will kick off on April 25, the registration day, with a Chat Chuckle and Learn private dinner hosted by Niki Tudge with Guest Speaker Dr. Lisa Radosta. Another unique offering is the PPG Gala Dinner hosted on April 27, which this year will feature a dinner presentation by Dr. Ilana Reisner.
The hosts are offering their respective memberships special seminar rates. Public rates are also available and include the Early Bird special if registration is prior to July 18. The popular Great Dane Package is once again available and includes the seminar entrance ticket,
seminar t-shirt, hotel accommodation, breakfast and lunch each day and both evening events. This package may also be paid for over the next 10 months.
The Dog Bite Safety seminar will be supported by a selection of PPG and Doggone safe Corporate Partners, Seminar Sponsors and Popular Exhibitors, whom will all share the main room for additional focus and networking opportunities.
Tudge states, "Aggression and Bite safety is a very important topic for pet professionals, pet owners, home service workers and community representatives. It is often misunderstood leaving pet owners without much-needed help and support. We hope this is the first of many educational initiatives to help keep our canines and families safe through education, community programs and a much better all-round understanding of these crucial topics. Doggone safe works year-round to help support Dog Bite Safety Educators, Be a Tree Presenters and Pet Owners where PPG represents professionals working in the field who benefit from the Guild's education program and resources to support their effectiveness. Hosting this seminar together is the perfect fit and a great opportunity to bring like-minded supportive individual together."
