Congratulations go out to Kathy Sdao, our friend and ClickerExpo faculty member, who will be writing a regular dog behavior column for msn.com at their recently launched dog site. Kathy's column will appear few times a month in the "Dog Talker" section. Kathy, a trained scientist, is a gifted teacher and trainer. She has been a practitioner of clicker training for more than 17 years and is highly respected among her peers in the training world. Kathy has taught and trained an incredible variety of animal species. Her passion for training is matched only by her skill. This is, in many ways, Kathy's debut as a web writer so let's be sure to read her and reinforce her for her excellent work. What a great opportunity for clicker training to be introduced to even more people. Check out Kathy's article here. You'll be able to see Kathy teach at the 2007 ClickerExpo conferences, the first of which is scheduled for Los Angeles beginning January 26. Registration opens in July at www.clickerexpo.com.
