June 16-17: Dog Attack and Bite Investigation Seminar at Wood Green Animal Sanctuary, Cambridgeshire, England. Link here: Jim Crosby 2014 Seminar Update
Please, if you are nearby (or want an excuse to travel!) come on and join us. The events in New Jersey will be supporting the efforts of New Jersey Aid for Animals. The Seminar at Wood Green supports the rescue and sheltering work of the Wood Green Animal Sanctuary. The Dog Bite Prevention Conference supports the Victoria Stilwell Positively Foundation and Victoria's extensive work to improve owner and child safety around pet dogs and her work to promote positive based training methods.
I hope to make these very informative and also entertaining seminars, despite the fact that some of the subjects are very serious. Those aimed at Animal Care personnel will be more technical on the behavioral side. Those for Law Enforcement will address more enforcement and invetigative issues. The Bite Prevention Conference is dedicated to education and information aimed at reducing the needless negative interactions between humans and our canine companions that happen each year, with information linking welfare and training issues to these incidents.
So come on out. Meet with me, my friends, and other interested professionals and doggie folks and hopefully you will take home a few ideas on how to improve your relationship with you furry friends.
