Animal Care Expo 2020

After an exhaustive process of due diligence conversations and staff preparation efforts regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, we have come to the difficult decision to cancel Animal Care Expo 2020 on May 6-9 in San Antonio, TX. We know this message is not the one many of you were hoping to receive. For others, it may be the challenging and difficult decision you hoped the HSUS might reach. Please know that all of you reading this message are in our thoughts.

It is with deep regret that we must make this unfortunate announcement, and we invite you to click the button below to read on and learn more about the decision to cancel and next steps.

“He barks at strangers.” “She hates men.” “Watch out, this dog might bite!” If you find yourself saying these things, help is on the way! What do you do when a reactive dog approaches? How about when the reactive dog is in your arms or on your leash? After this session, you will know how to use relaxed movement and calmly confident body language to help people and dogs be their most comfortable selves in common situations. Would you like to have quieter kennels? The principles discussed in this session, coupled with smart canine-intuitive routines, can help achieve that goal too.
