#EukanubaPawsInMotion to BarkWorld

Last Oct, Jasmine and I went to Atlanta, GA to attend the BarkWorld Expo. We had so much fun!!

We met Lauren and her trick dog Paige there for the first time!
And together, we gave a presentation on "How To Make Your Dog A YouTube Rockstar"! :D

We shared our unique story. Both of our dogs started off as YouTube trick dogs, and through social media both have now been on TV and commercials!

We each gave tips on how to make popular YouTube videos, how to network, and how to train your dog to do tricks. (We both use positive reinforcement- clicker training.) Then we did a trick dog demo, and answered questions after the presentation.

Lauren and I both had a fantastic time at BarkWorld! What an experience! I had no idea anything like that even existed! I made a lot of connections- some really cool friends and some professional contacts. And I attended classes to help me (CJ) become a little more tech-savvy! :) (which I need!) (Although I now use Twitter, I still can't say I fully understand it!!) LOL
But I'm pretty good with YouTube and Facebook. :) And now we just joined Pinterest, but so far that seems pretty easy to figure out. :)

I absolutely loved this convention! One of the best parts was being able to meet Victoria Stillwell!!! From the Animal Planet TV show "It's Me or The Dog". She's a big advocate of positive reinforcement training, so it was sooooo cool to meet her in person!! We went to her class to hear her presentation. Absolutely LOVED it!!

Here's the little promo video I made of our trip to BarkWorld!

We would love to go back this year too! Eukanuba is sponsoring a sweepstakes to win free airfare/hotel/transportation to Atlanta! It's called "Blog Your Way To BarkWorld".
