What this room is about...
K9joy's Voice/Chat Room is a means of communication about dogs and their nature - and other related topics that might interest dog lovers who respect the dog's nature.
We will use it for three main purposes:
The special education sessions will be announced directly to the people who are invited. They will be given a specific password for those sessions.
The public webinars will generally be advertised below on this page - where you can sign up for them and get your password.
The closed meetings may or may not be advertised on this page. in any case, the people, who are supposed to attend will get their access information in other ways.
To access the room, you will need
If you sign up for more than one webinar, you have to go through the sign-up process for each of them, just as you do when you buy tickets to multiple sports events or concert performances. You do not need to download the software more than once, though.
Be aware that the software contains an .exe file - which means that it executes itself. This makes some firewalls and virus protectors want to classify it as a virus! If you experience problems with this, please:
Please do not expect to get assistance with these technicalities 2 minutes before a webinar... Get prepared and test your settings a minimum of 2 hours before you are supposed to enter the room, if not the day before.
Entering the room
In order to enter the room you do the following:
Be aware that the quality of the sound you hear and the presentations you see will depend quite a lot on the quality and speed of your Internet connection. But a good dial-up connection will normally work reasonably well, although somewhat "challenged". Unfortunately, a slow dial-up connection will often cause trouble with the quality.
Please make sure that you enter the room well ahead of the start of the event you want to participate in. The room will always be open at least an hour before, often much earlier (especially for first-time events), so you do not have the solve technical challenges in the last minute.
Note: we do check that the participants are only those we have approved, so if you log in with a different name than what we approved, you will be excluded from the voice room. Also, if you log in after we did the check on participants, you might not be accepted, so please be on time!
We look forward to meeting you!

Dog are not genetically programmed to be alone. Wolves live their lives in packs that are generally one big family.
Dogs can nevertheless be trained to stay alone for shorter periods of time, as long as this time does not exceed the time they would sleep anyway.
What matters for a dog's happiness is not the amount of time you have to be away for work. It is what you do with your spare time...
