She noted, too that, “Larry Kay was awarded the first-ever APDT CLASS Book Award because he embraces what we hope all pet owners find when they use an APDT trainer: positive reinforcement training with your dog can be fun!”
Larry and Spider utilize Blue-9 Pet Products and Klimb Training Platforms during many of their training sessions.
Jamie Popper of Blue-9 shared, “Blue-9 is thrilled to have such a talented duo in the Blue-9 Demo area at the APDT Annual Conference. Larry Kay and Spider the Australian Cattle dog have a knack for performance and storytelling. This conference is the meeting of the minds of brilliant trainers and speakers to further education for dog training professionals.”
Blue-9, Jamie said, “Is proud to support Larry’s mission to combine movie-making magic to help rescue dogs get rescued and adopted.”
