Check-in was between 8:00 and 9:00 AM, (I got there about 8:30), and it was over a little past 5:00 PM. I thought he did really well too, he's barked more in a one hour obedience class than he did in the almost 9 hours that we were at the workshop.
Calone, you're lucky, Kienan lives in Southern California (Riverside maybe?) and I'm sure she does workshops and maybe even classes there. Have you read Control Unleashed? It's really a terrific book, and will give you an idea of the program, which is for reactive, or even just distracted dogs, either in the context of competing in agility or other sports, and also for companion dogs. http://www.controlunleashed.net/book.html
There's a CU yahoo list to discuss training techniques, ask questions, and share successes, and a separate one for SF Bay Area events, and maybe other areas too. Leslie is on the main list daily, and is very good about answering questions.
Kathy, we're signed up for the next Continuation workshop, which will be in the middle of next month. It's shorter, 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM the evening before the next Intro workshop, and will have 10 working teams instead of 15. After we've all worked on the foundation work for a month, we'll do some of the games with two or more dogs.
The planned workshops were for a weekend in mid June, July and August, and Kienan does privates Saturday during the day, Continuation that evening, and then Intro all day Sunday. The plan is to try and get her up here on a regular basis, maybe quarterly, and some of the people on the SF list get together and practice.
