I wasn't sure where to post this but I was curious if anyone here will be attending this years Canadian Association of Profeesional Pet Dog Trainers Conference in Ottawa and or have you attended in the past?

My obidence trainer recomended attending it after I brought up I was looking to go into the applied animal behaviour field and am curious if anyone knows if any certificates or acknowledgment of attendance is given out. The reason I ask is York University where I have applied gives consideration to out of school activities for students who are applying and are not freash out of high school, which is the case for me.

I'm still iffy at this point as the cost is quite substantial, and while I can afford to go, it's not pocket money.

The topics and workshops being given look amazing but I'm still sleeping on it because of the total price to go.

So anyone else planning or thinking about going/ have gone in the past and if so care to share your experinces.
