On February 22, 2016 Brian attended the 2016 Pennsylvania Game Breeders and Hunting Preserves Conference in State College, Pa. sponsored by Penn State Department of Animal Science.
Brian was one of the several speakers at the 2 day event. The topic of dissection was “The latest in e-collar technology and best practices for sporting dogs”. There have been many improvements over the last several years with several improvements and new features. He also discussed the introduction of the e-collar or collar conditioning and went over a few pointers on how to start.
Brian’s lab Billey was the demo dog for the discussion and made the perfect model. Other topics presented were bird health, building ventilation and sanitation and cover management.
