The expression of emotion in man and dog

What a fascinating title has been chosen for this year’s James Wellbeloved Annual Symposium to be held on the 10th October 2004 at the Sports Connexion, Ryton-on-Dunsmore, near Coventry, writes Mike mullan.

This cleverly put together series of papers prepared by John Rogerson and six of his associates will definitely provoke much conversation and deliberation by all those folk who work within the realms of canine behaviour or indeed dog training regardless which of the many disciplines they are interested or work in. In fact anybody with an interest in canine behaviour and human/canine relationship cannot afford to miss this Symposium.

The subjects covered will open people’s minds and enable them to have a better understanding of how their emotions and their canine’s emotions may and can affect their relationships, their training programmes and the results they may obtain with their dogs not only as a social animal but certainly in all the various canine activities in which they may partake.

Each of the six speakers is a full Associate of John Rogerson and has therefore had to prove their experience, knowledge and capabilities to have been considered for their Associateship.

They have studied and worked with John Rogerson as individuals as well as a team and the contents of this Symposium are the results of these studies. John Rogerson himself, was involved in the preparation of each of the subjects by all six associates and ensured that a great depth of work was undertaken to ensure that each section was complete and thorough and that each one would interlink with the others.

The Symposium opens at 9am for registration and will finish at 5pm, a full buffet lunch will be served and the Symposium is approved by the Kennel Club for its Accreditation Scheme for Dog Trainers and Canine Behaviourists.

Tickets are available at £26.00 including Buffet lunch from Mike Mullan Organiser, Dunsmore Kennels, London Road, Stretton-on-Dunsmore, Warks, CV23 9HX. Tel: 024 7654 2566. Cheques made payable to J.M. Mullan - an SAE A5 size would be appreciated.
