I don't recall anyone with that message reaching such an audience as he has. IMHO he has performed a very valuable service to dog owners and those who have to be around dogs, and if he has been paid well and parlayed his fame into money, good for him.
Agree 100%. Funny how people bash CM - & yet so many people linger at every word by the Hollywood types (beauty & no brains) -& look what THOSE people make! I still say it comes down to the Little Green monster, when it comes to CM & this forum...

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.

I had to skip a few words to read it all but, what? I could say much. What ticks a trainer off more then anything is when you give your heart and soul for what you do and the person (you help) does not even care enough to do what is right for a dog, but for them selves.

I'd be willing to pay 6k for a reasonable amount of training and continuous input, spread out over a reasonable amount of time. There is just no way anyone could walk away with a fix for their dog in a week.
Maybe if it was a week of one on one, but that's not the case.
We get enough people on the forum wanting to send their dogs off to some trainer to fix all their issues...or believing that they can send their puppies to some guy for a month and it will come back a trained killer that will protect its family to the death. I remember one guy saying how he was talking to a trainer that said his dog was finished with obedience at 6 months old and could soon start protection training.

Wonder how much all those places cost...so yeah people do believe that there are magical quick fixes to issues or even people out there that can train their dogs to do things within days when it would take a regular owner months or years.

I also have a question of why Ellis is being brought up over and over again? Is he the end all be all of dog trainers? Why is that? Because some of you agree with his methods, you've seen them work, he's not on TV? It's just interesting why one trainer gets bashed on a consistent basis while another one gets praised. I don't know what Ellis's fees are...but I wouldn't pay them either.

Correct! I am in fact assuming that you are assuming that!

An assumption?
