October 9th, 2012

The Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT) holds their annual conference and trade show October 17-21 in Covington, KY for the first time.
Greenville, SC, October 9, 2012 — Mychelle Blake, President and CEO of The Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT) is pleased to announce their Annual Conference and Trade Show will be in Covington, KY this year, more than 2200 miles from last year’s conference in San Diego. Nearly 1,000 dog trainers are expected to attend the five-day event celebrating the profession and educating on new developments in the industry.

“This conference is a great way for top training professionals as well as beginners to get together and feel motivated all over again for their interesting, rewarding, yet challenging profession,” said Blake.  “Not only do trainers have to know about dog behavior, training techniques and human psychology, but also how to be a strong successful business professional and grow their business.”

The APDT Conference and Trade Show is the most diverse in the world on dog behavior and training.  The five days of jam-packed activities include: a lineup of the most respected speakers in the field; 17 hands-on, interactive workshop sessions, with demos and field studies; meet and greets; a riverboat cruise and exhibitor booths on the trade show floor showcasing the latest and greatest in treats, training tools, and dog care items.

“This is a very passionate group of skilled people who will all be in one place at one time, and we’re thrilled for that to be the Northern Kentucky area this year,” said Blake. “It is the place to go if you’re a dog training professional looking to broaden your knowledge base, a beginner just starting out wanting to learn more, or you’re involved with the dog care industry as a vet tech, veterinarian, shelter worker, groomer or pet sitter who wants to know more about training and dog behavior.”
