"I am the training officer for the Sacramento County Sheriff's Search and Rescue Unit. We have about 10 dogs active with our unit. We are trying some of the things we learned at the Berkeley Expo. It was great!"
A big success! The first ClickerExpo, held in Chicago, was a definite success judging by the evaluation / feedback forms turned in: 92% of those who turned in surveys said that they would recommend ClickerExpo to a friend and 90% of the respondents said that we either met their expectations, beat their expectations or "wowed" them. 22% alone described their experience as a "wow!"
Karen Pryor, The new i-Clickâ„¢ and you at APDT. A lot of you will be at APDT. So will a lot of us. And there's a lot to do and see. Come to booth # 109. Drop in to say hi. We'd love to see you again or meet you for the first time.
Here a few things we wanted to remind you about
ClickerExpo - West in Berkeley, CA was attended by a record number of clicker trainers... and what an enthusiastic crowd it was! 98%(!) of the registrants who filled out the feedback form reported that ClickerExpo either met their expectations, exceeded their expectations or gave them a "wow" experience. In fact, more people reported "Wow" than anything else!
Karen Pryor, author of "Clicker Training for Cats," was the featured speaker for the Cat Writers Association annual awards banquet in Houston, Texas, on November 9, 2002. Pryor was the winner of last year's Purina-sponsored award for the best book on cat behavior. She discussed the rise of clicker training, her own experiences as a pioneer in the field, and clicker work with cats. A discussion of clicker ways to befriend feral cats and kittens brought the audience of cat experts to their feet in a standing ovation.
