Bark World Expo on the Dog Doctor Radio Show

Today on the Dog Doctor Radio Show we had the privilege of speaking to the founder of a very exciting and innovative event taking place in Atlanta, GA on August 20-22. It is called Bark World Expo and will showcase speakers and workshops from people as far away as the United Kingdom including Denver’s very own Dr. Robert Forto, PhD

Here the show now: The Dog Doctor Radio Show Bark World Expo Showcase

Bark World Expo is the brainchild of event planner Denise Quashie and is going to bring together members of the pet community that are involved in blogging, social media, podcasting and more. Did you know that there is a tremendous upswing in people blogging AS their pets? Yes, hundreds, if not thousands of pet’s “speak” each week on blogs and twitter pages all over the world.

Natalie Malaszenko of Petco, one of the keynote speakers at Bark World Expo, has taken notice of this, as with the tremendous upswing the how their customers utilize social media and the company is targeting advertising specials and even conversation starters on this highly popular new age communication tool(s).

How does this relate to dog training you may ask? Denver Dog Works and others are utilizing social media, and in particular, Facebook to update clients on training progress in our Camp Works program, to share pictures and get feedback from our clients. Denver Dog Works has found that by utilizing a Facebook Fan Page it keeps them better connected with our clients and in turn makes training much more accessible to pet owners all over the country.

Readers: How do you use social media in your daily life? Do you include your pets? We would love to hear from you. Please comment below or send an email to


Michele Forto is Denvers Dog Training Examiner, a certified canine trainer at Denver Dog Works and the co-host of the Dog Doctor Radio Show.
