ClickerExpo Luminos | Conference Programme
The science of behaviour change and animal training grew up separately. Like first cousins separated by culture and language, they knew one another, but didn't get to see each other very often. Karen Pryor’s Don’t Shoot the Dog planted the seeds for a giant reunion by linking the two disciplines.
Over the years, pioneering trainers like Karen Pryor, Ken Ramirez, Kathy Sdao, and Michele Pouliot have used behavioural science to inform, refine, and extend their training across species. Pioneering behavioural scientists like Susan G. Friedman, Ph.D and Dr. Jesús Rosales-Ruiz informed their research and teaching with the practices of the world’s best clicker trainers.
For the last 15 years, top trainers, scientists, and animal caregivers have come together at ClickerExpo to create a wealth of knowledge about science and positive reinforcement. Now, welcome to an evolution of ClickerExpo, exclusive to the UK in 2018... Luminos. Let the light of our community shine in.
