    This was an awesome seminar! I wish my friends and family could have attended with me. Very informational and I loved the audience participation. I will definitely be recommending this seminar to everyone. It's an excellent seminar not just for owners but for the general public.

    I have watched Dawn do a complete temperament test. It was important to me to understand each part of the test and why it was important.Also really wanted to know more about therapy and service dogs,it's something I hope we can do.

    Excellent information, well worth the money and time to attend. Something like this needs to be tailored to non-pit bull owners to educate them about the breed and offered in every community in the region.

    I'm glad something is on Saturday. I work on Sundays and can never attend the dog events which would be good for my kid because he doesn't get out much.
