This year’s theme is bringing together key stakeholders to improve availability of high-quality, American-bred, -raised, and -trained dogs to protect our national and public security.
The conference focuses on presenting practical information for each of our key audiences –breeders, puppy-raisers, trainers, and buyers—and providing real, actionable resources that improve participants’ opportunities to work together for a successful future.
