International Working Dog Breeding Association is proud to host the 10th
International Working Dog Conference, taking place in spectacular Banff,
Alberta. The objective of the conference is to create a collaborative
environment where program managers and handlers from international working dog
programs come together with researchers and subject matter resources from
scientific disciplines which influence the working dog community. This meeting is
a unique opportunity to exchange critical information, which in turn results in
advancement for numerous aspects of working dog programs. The theme for IWDC 2017
is: <b>"Science and Innovation: Advancing Breeding, Early Development,
Training and Deployment." The ABVMA has approved 20 hours CE for attending
this conference. </b></span><span style="line-height:115%;background-image:initial;background-position:initial;background-size:initial;background-repeat:initial;background-origin:initial;background-clip:initial">Early registration has been extended to January
