Lorette Vanourny, CPDT-KA will be talking about the hot topic of “choice.” We control most everything
in our dogs lives such as when they eat, where they eat, when and where they sleep, if they go for a
walk, maybe even where they walk…what if we gave our dogs the opportunity to make some choices?
Lorette will walk through the joy of teaching with choice, both for the handler and the dog.

Dr Christine Woodford, DVM will be speaking about dogs and horses that compete as well as our pets.
She will dive into how our pets bodies work best when they are fit and balanced. Dr Woodford

Dr Barbara Fox, DVM will be speaking on feeding the mind and body of our animals, specifically our
dogs. She will talk about how to care for our animals in a holistic manner, while not completely giving
up on modern medicine. Both worlds can and should be a part of how we care for our dogs and other

Sherry Ross will be speaking about how we can teach our dogs to become skilled companions around
our homes. This talk will be geared towards helping families who are living with a disability in their
