ORCA (The Organization for Reinforcement Contingencies with Animals) has announced the date for their 5th annual Art and Science of Animal Training Conference, which will be held on February 2, 2013 at the University of North Texas.
I’m currently a graduate student at the University of North Texas. I’ve attended this conference every year and have helped with the planning for the last several years. This is one of my all time favorite conferences. I always learn SO much and leave with plenty of ideas for things to try, as well as ways to improve my own training.
I have notes on my site from the 2009, 2010, and 2012 conferences. You can also check out this interview with ORCA adviser, Dr. Jesus Rosales-Ruiz for a bit more info about the history of the conference and how it came about.
