Recent Trainer’s and ADI International Conferences a huge success

For the first time the Trainer’s and ADI International Conferences were combined this year and they were a huge success.

Over 150 people attended the Trainers Conference and over 200 came to the ADI International Conference held in Denver, Colorado, last month.

Keynote sessions covered a wide range of topics, including:

  • Ways to reduce kennel stress
  • How to understand animal behavior
  • Using storytelling to powerfully share your mission

In addition, breakout sessions presented by ADI members as well as guest speakers, covered a variety of topics, generating productive discussions among attendees.

Tours of the KONG Factory were offered as well as the LEED platinum-rated Denver Animal Shelter—both which were entertaining and informative.

Thank you to our sponsors: Planet Dog Foundation, Petcurean, KONG, Bold Lead Designs, and Leader Dogs for the Blind for helping to make this year’s conference possible.
