Goodbye Pasadena, Hello Chicago

Toward the end of March, I traveled to Pasadena, California to give a three-day seminar on cat and dog behavior (one day on cats, two days on dogs).  The dog days were better attended than the cat days because, I suppose, there are more dog trainers than cat trainers but either way the event was a great success.  About 800 Power Points slides later and a score or so of videos, I wound up the event and headed to Santa Monica to watch the sun set over the Pacific before heading back to Boston exhausted but happy.  That week I was inundated with new cases involving canine aggression, various types of anxiety, compulsive disorders, and even submissive urination.  On the Friday of that week, I was joined by a reporter from Science magazine who is writing a piece about one of my main interests, how spontaneously occurring animal behavior problems can sometimes shed light on human psychiatric conditions.  The matter is somewhat controversial with opinions varying from “how can we learn anything about human behavior by studying animals” to “this is an untapped mine of information, the study of which will benefit not only dogkind but also mankind.”  Anyway, with that week behind me I am now preparing for another two-day canine behavioral seminar event at Narnia Pet Behavior & Training in Plainfield, Illinois (near Chicago).  Anybody from that area who is interested in attending should check out my website, The PetDocs.com under “Events” to see the full program.  That’s it for now.  Keep the faith and keep on training – positively.
