People only lectures with K9 Misfit dogs for demonstration and practice.  All lectures will be taught by Bilinda Taras Krupa, ADBC and Trainer, owner of K9 Misfits.  Other K9 Misfit consultants and trainers may also be in attendance, assisting.

Why don’t I get to bring my dog?

The most effective way to learn is by teaching YOU first.  It is really difficult to teach yourself behaviour while watching your dog and then teaching them.  We bring our dogs for demonstration so that you can practice with some already great learners!
