Ian Dunbar (the ‘godfather’ of positive puppy training) is a great speaker: funny, intelligent, very charismatic and does great dog impressions (his Jack Russell is a classic)! I’ve heard him speak many, many times. I always pick up some new idea and fresh inspiration from him and come home with aching sides from laughing so much.
He did say recently that he wouldn’t be doing anymore talks outside the US (except for his annual jaunt to the Bahamas) so I don’t know how Lisa & Tara managed to persuade him to come to Ireland. If you get the chance, go!
