Getting to know people in the local area that have retriever training experience will be great. I have access to a number of different private and public properties to train. The club I train with now, meets once a month. I will be ale to do some things with the new pup there while I continue to do more field work with my Setter. I genuinely enjoy training and learning about training methods that I am unfamiliar with. I think this will be a fun adventure with a new pup.
Darrin, I can't PM you yet do to my low post count. If you think of it, would you PM me your email address and I will reach out to you. Thanks for the help.
If you need help with Setter, Pete DeAngelis near Easton PA might be helpful.
For retriever training you'll need to divorce yourself from a lot of the versatile stuff.
