FAIRPORT, N.Y. (WROC) — Lollypop Farm held its first ever behavior and training conference on Thursday.
Over 60 animal welfare professionals from around the region came to give important advice and best practices for shelters and rescue groups.
They discussed animal training, dog to dog introductions and early kitten and puppy socialization.
“I was at a conference last spring where I spoke about kitten socialization and I had several people approach me and ask do you do anything at Lollypop Farm? Do you guys have any classes or anything? And I thought, oh yeah of course we can do that,” Behavior and Training Manager Rebecca Lohnes said.
The conference exceeded expectations and Lollypop quickly sold out tickets shortly after posting the advertisement.
