2019 Delta Institute Dog Behaviour Conference

Take the Lead: Exploring the Relevance of Dog Emotional Health in Training

With support from the Ian Potter Foundation, this conference brings Sarah Heath, a specialist in behavioural medicine from the UK to speak exclusively for the Delta Institute.

This conference is specially tailored to trainers, vets and vet nurses, rescue and shelter workers, and anyone involved in the pet industry who understands the importance of emotional health in animals.

It will also appeal to experienced dog owners who would like to know how understanding dog emotional health can help them take their training to the next level.
