met conference 2021

The very first year of the international online conference for dog lovers and dog trainers in the Czech Republic and Slovakia took place on March 6th and 7th, 2021. Among the guests were eight experienced trainers from the Czech Republic, France, Australia and the USA. Every ticket included access to a 75 minute course from American dog trainer Emily Larlham aka Kikopup focused on the coexistence of several dogs in one household.
