2021 Dog Behavior Conference Announced
The 8th annual Dog Behavior Conference will be held online from April 16-18, 2021.
This past May, we shifted our favorite event of the year - the Dog Behavior Conference (DBC) - from an in-person conference in the UK to an international online virtual event, allowing dog lovers from all over the world to come together for one enlightening and inspiring weekend.
In those early days of lockdowns and social distancing, we worked with the 2020 DBC attendees to develop a virtual conference experience which would continue the longstanding tradition of providing a unique, intimate and powerful learning experience for dog lovers. Although it has since become the norm for many of us, shifting to an online experience came with some trepidation - both from attendees as well as for us as the hosts. We weren't sure what to expect, but the end result was simply overwhelming. The online DBC was a much-needed and very powerful experience for everyone involved.
So we were thrilled recently when we were able to announce that the 2021 DBC will once again be held online, but with a couple big changes:
- We're extending the conference to 3 days (previously it was 2 days)
- We expanded the speaker list from 8 to more than 12 (and it's still growing!)
The 2021 conference registration fee is just $145 (approximately £110) - and that covers all 12 presentations over all 3 days plus the downloadable resources and access to watch recordings of each presentation as much as you'd like after the conference.
The DBC is a special event and one of my favorite weekends of the year. It brings together leaders from the fields of training, behavior, academia, science, rescue/shelter and veterinary with dog trainers, dog owners and pet professionals from all over the world.
But it's more than just another series of nice PowerPoint presentations. Yes, the 2021 DBC speaker list is intense and pretty jaw-dropping, but we take very seriously the responsibility of providing an opportunity for like-minded dog people to come together once a year as one supportive, inspiring, and empowering force for change in the dog world. The DBC audience is uniquely connected to one another, and we work hard to maintain that sense of togetherness even in the face of a global pandemic. In fact, we think that's more important now than ever before.
We hope you'll join us next April for another phenomenal learning and connecting experience at the Dog Behavior Conference.
Registration is now open, so secure your seat for this unique experience today.
