Comments from past Pam Long seminar participants...
"I would again like to thank you for putting on the Pam Long seminar. It was great! Such a fabulous learning experience. The hands on with so many different dogs, at different levels and training issues was very informative. I will be the first one to admit that sometimes I am reluctant attending some seminars because some training techniques are so far off the wall and sometimes many people pay the big bucks and get lost in the numbers. I did not feel that way at all.
"As always it was amazing!" ...Kaylynn
"Arie and I had a wonderful time! I can't wait for the next seminar!" ... Mariah
I also liked that the seminar wasn’t geared toward one obedience topic (heeling, retrieves, articles etc.); we were able to work on our individual needs. This allowed everyone to gain knowledge regardless of their current training level. Through watching others, I got some good training ideas for when Zuni and I reach the higher levels of obedience. For me this seminar was a keeper and I wouldn’t hesitate to sign up again!" ...Terry
"I thought it was AWESOME! I have never been to a clinic formatted like this one. I really liked it...learned as much from watching others as I did with my own dogs. Got the 'wheels turning' on how to proof exercises! Thanks!" ...Tracy
"I like training when it is fun......and Pam certainly makes it fun! She is not only a great teacher but a wonderful person. I will be back"....Shirley
"I really enjoyed the seminar! It motivated me to get more assertive with my home training! The laughter and humor are good therapy for the humans :). It is a fun and supportive group, too! Pam is good at providing constructive criticism.".... Ann
