Hey, Kevin - the seminar will be about 2 hrs in the morning followed by a mock test that folks can run their dogs for the remainder of the day. During the mock test, there will be discussion about what to do and what not to do as folks run their dogs. You can chose whether you bring a dog or not. Although this will be a NAHRA event, everything that is discussed and presented will be easily transferable to whichever venue of tests you'd choose to run. I think you would have a great time, meet some really nice dog people and will learn a lot. Hope to see you there.
This may 4th seminar is just for people right? I might have to make the haul over there to get some insight of how these things work.
