Meh. CM is certainly NOT the first or only person to charge a pretty penny for training workshops. I might not agree with all of his methods but I don't see this as "desperate" or anything like that. He's a trainer; this is his job. Same as Ellis, Bellon, Stillwell.... I know of people that pay up the wazoo to ship their dogs to CA and then attend Ellis' school for days or weeks. If they can afford it, the dogs have fun, and they learn something valuable then I won't sit here and bitch about it. Trainers charge what they feel it is worth. If people want to pay it, I'm not losing sleep over it.
