Bart's seminar in Italy was well attended. All participants were from Italy (with the exception of one person from Kosovo!) Bart enjoyed his time in Italy and came home marveling at all the good dogs he saw there. It appears that the organizers of this event did not wish to be identified, and we respect their wishes. Regardless of the reasons in this particular case, it is unfortunate that the war waged by the "apostles of morality" against different factions of the dog community have forced dog trainers, handlers, and owners to become suspicious of outsiders and unwilling to be open for fear of unwanted publicity and contentious attacks. This is an attack on freedom. These are attacks by extremists. We have all certainly seen the videos from PETA and other rabid so-called animal rights organizations where the goal is to provoke and instigate uproar.
