Welcome to the APDT Australia 2017 Conference

The APDT is very pleased to announce that Conference 2017 is at the Stamford Grand Hotel in beachside Glenelg, South Australia from Thursday 26 October – Sunday 29 October.

This year we have another great line up of speakers both international and Australian to offer something new to a broad audience.

Speakers include:

  • Risë Van Fleet
  • Susan Friedman
  • Peta Clarke
  • Veronica Boutelle
  • Alexis Davison
  • Nic Bishop

Each year the APDT strives to bring you a conference packed full of new information, interesting and informative topics and world class speakers who will reinforce and update your skills and stretch or challenge your current beliefs. 2017 is no different.

An optional workshop on Thursday afternoon with Risë Van Fleet is a unique opportunity to learn about Working with Traumatised, Unsocialised Dogs.

During the catering breaks you will be able to take time to browse the trade stalls where you will find many wonderful dog products and books available for purchase.

We also hope to see you at the social events including the welcome ‘ice breaker’ drinks on Thursday evening and the conference dinner on Saturday and encourage you to take the opportunity to network with fellow dog ‘lovers’ and trainers – meeting and making friends new and old.

I look forward to seeing you at this wonderful conference.

APDT President 2017
