Working Spot vs. Auditing Spot

This is a training seminar, so there will be no shortage of geeking-out and discussing the ins and outs of a large variety of topics that Amy, Sarah, and Shade will be presenting. 

Working teams will work in two labs per day. Instructors will present two working labs and one non-working lecture each day. There will be an open Q&A with a panel of all three instructors at the end of each day. 

Auditors have the sweet deal of sitting in & joining the discussions, as well as being able to observe 24 different dog and handler teams working with the instructors throughout the weekend.

What does it cost?

Working spots – $300 (two working labs per day) 

Working Spots are limited to 24 teams (8 per group)
Additional working lab sessions (if available) will be sold separately- $80/session.   

Auditing Spots – $80/single day or $150/weekend 

Auditing Spots are unlimited. 

Service fees will be applied to all registrations. Payment  by credit card only.

Registration FAQs


Registration will open July 29th at 9AM. You can sign up & pay online with a credit card by clicking the button below.

How do working spots work? All working spots must pre-select their labs during registration. Teams will select and participate in two sessions per day. Handlers will audit the other sessions when they are not working a dog. Working spot selections have limited space, so options will decrease as spots fill. 

Experience level for working teams? Each session description will specify the required experience level of the working teams. 

How do auditing spots work? Auditing registrations will not need to preselect their sessions during registration. 

Can I bring an extra dog? Crating space is limited. Extra dogs will need to be approved. Auditors, if possible, please leave your dogs at home.

Is it possible to crate out of my car? Yes. Parking is close, and the area is safe. 

Will CEUs be available? No, they will not. 

Can I sign up for more than the two labs per day? Not initially. Only two working labs per day, per registration will be given. Once the initial 24 working teams as filled, remaining single-session working labs will be available for purchase. 

Is my dog suitable for this camp? Will your dog be comfortable and well-behaved in a moderately crowded space? Rings will be separated accordion fencing and people only. Entries and exits to working stations are well spaced apart, to minimize any dog to dog contact. However, if your dog is not comfortable in a working environment with so much action, please consider an auditing spot and allow a more suitable team to work during this seminar.

BIS Policy – Please notify me if you believe you will have a BIS at the time of the seminar, so we can make proper arrangements in crating, running order, etc. 

What is your refund policy? A working spot refund will be issued if requested on or before September 15, 2019. Refunds requested between September 16, 2019 and up to and including October 18, 2019 will be conditional on a suitable replacement from the waiting list, excluding service fees and less a $20 processing fee.

An auditing spot refund will be issued if requested on or before October 18, 2019.

All requests must be done by email to megan@synergydogsports.com
