BarkWorld: the Not-to-Miss Conference for Pet People

Love a dog? Owned by a cat? Wanna learn how social media can help your pet-focused business, local rescue, or animal-related website? Then don’t miss BarkWorld, the annual conference covering all facets of social media, pet lifestyle, and business education.

This year’s venue is the Loews Atlanta Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia, and the conference runs September 29 through October 1. Workshops and sessions include everything from the basics, like Social Media 101, to the more sophisticated, like SEO Metrics — and lots in between. Attended by industry leaders and pet enthusiasts, BarkWorld is more than a chance to learn. It’s an opportunity to network, make connections, and introduce yourself to the community.

Arguably, the most exciting aspect of the 2011 conference: Keynote speaker is none other than Victoria Stilwell, star of Animal Planet’s It’s Me or the Dog. Here at DogTime, Stilwell is one of our very favs. Her humane, “force-free” approach to training results, makes for fun for both canine and human, and results in happy, confident, well-behaved pets.

Sounds pretty good, right? It just got even better. Barkworld is offering DogTime and CatTime readers 15% off the $119 registration fee. Simply go to the registration page (, click on “enter discount code,” and type in DogTime.

We look forward to seeing you there!
