Learning About Dogs in New Zealand has been providing international speakers to the Pet Dog industry since 2008 through to 2019. We have enjoyed meeting a variety of people that use all types of training methods. The discussions are all worthwhile learning experiences and helped us all to understand the needs of Pet Dog Owners.

2008 March – Dr Ian Dunbar
After meeting Ian in San Francisco in 2005 we worked on a plan for him to come to New Zealand to present a three day seminar. Kelly Gorman-Dunbar was scheduled to attend for an Open Paw session, but a dog emergency (eating poisonous mushrooms) meant that she remain at home to look after him. Ian, however, did introduce us to the Open Paw Programme as well as sharing his knowledge about pet dog training.

2008 June – Dr Susan Friedman
