I am. Maybe if I knew what they were going to do I wouldn't get bit so much.

Went to the conference/seminar and it was very informative, small crowd, roughly 40 people attended.
Hector Hernandez is was very knowledgable about dogs, behavior, body language (of dogs and there owners whom
don't always verbally tell the truth), and bite prevention. He has worked with Michigan State Police K-9 unit and presents seminars
to our U S Postal Services (we all know how much our dogs love mail persons). Yes, I DID learn a few things.
He moved thru the material at a good pace, leaving no time for boredom or wandering minds, also used video and onsite demonstrations. With short breaks during the 4 1/2 hr presentation, Hector made himself available for one on one questions. Coffee and muffins etc.. were served by the Host of the event Brian Walsh and his staff at Walsh's K9.

For $10 this was a great deal ! Im keeping an eye out for add'l seminars from Hector.
