Trainers Around San Antonio
Hello all, new to posting here but have been reading for awhile now. I will be picking up a chocolate lab female pup in a couple of weeks and am looking for trainers in my area to take her to once she is old enough. I have done a lot of research, and have had other dogs before, but never done any formal hunting or obedience training with them. I'm not looking to run her in field trials or hunt tests, but I will use her for dove hunting and as a family dog, and maybe some duck hunting in the future. She will be an inside dog so house manners are a must. We also have an RV and go camping quite a bit so she'll be along for that. I live on over 100 acres with a couple of tanks and a creek and plan on having her down there quite a bit as well. I would like to find a trainer that will allow me to stay involved, even if only once a week, so finding one fairly close will help. I have searched the internet and have found a few, but I know there are more around that don't have websites. If you know of any or have any recommendations of some between San Antonio and Austin area that would much appreciated. My plan is to talk to as many of them as I can, and even go and watch them work with the dogs they are training.
So far I have talked to the following:
Cibilo Creek Kennels
My breeder had recommended Best retrievers and Stellar retrievers for training, but they are quite a ways from me, so I'd like to find someone closer if possible.
Thanks in advance,
