Educating dog trainers, behaviorists, shelters, rescues, humane organizations, veterinarians, vet technicians and other canine professionals about innovative, creative and humane training methods in practice today.
Puppyworks is “the event planner for dog people”. We sponsor and organize events presented by nationally and internationally prominent trainers, behaviorists and other professionals. The purpose is to educate trainers, behaviorists, shelters, rescues, humane organizations, veterinarians, veterinary technicians and other canine professionals.
We were founded in 1991 initially to provide instruction and counseling for dog owners and their canine friends. As an aside we began to sponsor small educational dog seminars with speakers from around the country, discovering in the process that trainers were very interested in enhancing their skills and knowledge in training and behavior modification.
Over the past 20 years Puppyworks has planned and executed successful events from small seminars and workshops to full scale regional and national conferences. Our events are presented in every region of the country and in virtually every major metropolitan area including:
Northeast: Boston MA, Metro NY & Connecticut, Philadelphia PA and DC / Northern Virginia;
Midwest: Metro Chicago IL, Cleveland / Columbus OH; Madison / Milwaukee WI; Minneapolis MN
South / Southwest: Central Florida / Orlando; Austin TX & Phoenix AZ;
West: Southern CA-Los Angeles and San Diego; San Francisco bay area, Silicon Valley to Marin / Sonoma;
Northwest: Seattle WA area.
