Continuing Education

No matter who we are or what we have done, we are nothing if we stop learning. Animal training is a science and as instructors we owe it to our clients to keep up to date on the latest information available on how animals learn.  Below is not a complete list, but contains most of the seminars, training programs, workshops and conferences that Vicki has attended.
