    The Chocolate Conference 2011 is an immersive and rewarding event for chocolate lovers with two main components both included with a single ticket purchase: A Showcase of Chocolate and a Chocolate Academy. The Showcase of Chocolate is an exhibition hall where attendees can sample chocolates from the participating chocolatiers and chocolate makers. An adult ticket allows for ten samples during any one of the four sampling sessions in the Showcase of Chocolate. Sessions are an hour and a half long and start at 11:00 AM.
 
    In the Chocolate Academy, attendees can hear talks throughout the day about the making, use, and history of fine chocolate. The Academy will kick-off at 10:00 AM with the Chocolatier's Roundtable -- a free-flowing discussion with all participating chocolatiers. Clay Gordon (The Chocolate Life) will be returning this year to lead his "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Chocolate" class and Adrienne Newman (Madame Cocoa) will be the Chocolate Academys mistress of ceremonies. While all classes are included with a ticket purchase, space is limited and is on a first come, first seated basis.

Traci Murdock, CPDT-KA, is a Master Trainer, Canine Behavior Specialist, and Certified Professional Dog Trainer, and she is a Talent Scout and Wrangler. She has trained dogs and their humans for over 10 years. Traci's expertise includes pet dog issues, nutrition, behavior issues, dog sports and activities, and rescue and adoption, and she has experience in just about any dog-related subject. Traci volunteers as a behavior consultant for rescues and shelters.
Traci created the Hollywood Dog™ class to teach owners the skills necessary to break into show business and Reactive Dog™ classes to help people learn to manage their dogs’ out of control behaviors and teach the dog the skills needed to have more normal interactions with the world around them. She prides herself on creating rewarding relationships between dogs and owners by equipping them with the knowledge to lead a happy and healthy life together.
I take pride in providing my clients with personalized attention and professional instruction that is based on the most up-to-date knowledge about dog training and behavior. My goal is to help you better understand and teach your dog so he or she can be a valued, lifelong companion.
My training methods are non-force-based, progressive, and very dog friendly. You'll love the simplicity, your dog will love the attention, and you'll both love the results. No more struggling to get your dog's attention and cooperation. You'll be delighted with your dog's progress and will look forward to each lesson.
Private Lessons
Private training is tailored to what you want your dog to learn. Whether it's house training or nail-trimming, jumping on guests or stealing your shoes, we’ll design a training plan to meet your needs. I coach you to train your dog – I’ll show you how, help you along the way, and follow up between sessions as needed.
