The Annual Art and Science of Animal Training Conference

Since 2009, ORCA has helped host the Art and Science of Animal Training Conference.┬áThe conference brings together animal trainers and behavior analysts for lectures and conversations about the science of animal training and about “what’s new” in animal training.

The conference has gained a reputation as one of the country’s top animal training conferences. It is one of the few conferences that brings together animal trainers from a variety of fields, including dog trainers, horse trainers, zoo trainers, marine mammal trainers, bird trainers, and more.

Our past conferences have been a great success, thanks to our wonderful speakers, our ORCA members and volunteers who keep everything running smoothly, and, of course, everyone who has attended.
