    Attar and Ward have Goldens on their trucks. Attar started with Chessies. Sometimes it's important to know the background of the pro. And you don't really say where in the East that you actually live?
    I was thinking the same thing. Isn't Florida also in the East?

    Interesting. I only saw one poster ask the OP what his goals are. So far no answer...

    I would start by asking, "what do you want the dog to do?" The "Best" is all determined by what you are looking to accomplish.

    The real answer is it depends. The "best professional" will be different for every owner depending on goals, expectations and previous experience.

    The best pro is the one you trust your dog with and will help you achieve the goals you have set for your dog if possible.

    I'm going to answer the question based on ME not the op since we are unsure of their requirements and or goals

    From the HT pro's I've seen Only 2 really stand out as "knowledgeable" dog folk and genuinely good people...Their dogs are ALWAYS up beat, great attitudes and are more then "ready" for what ever level they are running in...They are Buck Shope & Trish Jagoda...Both the class of east coat HT circuit! And have had the pleasure of running many a HT and few FT's with them both

    As far as word of mouth a reputation, I only trained "near" him a few times at the canal.....But Know several folks who are good dog people in their own right that have sent dogs to him and that's Randy Bohn...Seems to have a stellar reputation with solid results that speak for themselves...
