Announcing the Shock-Free Coalition Celebratory Competition – November 17, 2018

PPG  has marked November 17, 2018 as the first ever International Day of Advocacy to celebrate its official launch of the Shock-Free Coalition one year ago. The focal point of the celebration will be Let’s Celebrate +R, a photo and video competition where pet professionals and enthusiasts can showcase the best of positive reinforcement-based pet training and education.

Let’s Celebrate +R will run from seven days prior to seven days post November 17, so all who wish to advocate for force-free training get the chance to demonstrate their skills and promote their educational message. You can enter via both the North America website: www.petprofessionalguild.com and the Europe website: www.PPGBI.com. Prizes will be issued to the winners selected from submissions to both websites.

Come Celebrate With Us!

To participate in the International Day of Advocacy 2018, all you have to do is take a photo and/or make a short video and submit it to one of the Let’s Celebrate +R competition categories. You can participate from anywhere in the world, so register today and help us celebrate this important day! Together we can help educate and advocate for the use of positive reinforcement and force-free training and pet care methods. Let’s celebrate the beginning of our advocacy journey as we work towards building a strong and broad movement committed to eliminating shock devices from the supply and demand chain worldwide.
