I have a 7 month old lab and would like to train him for upland hunting. This is my first dog that I will be attempting to train. Are there many trainers that "help" you for a fee. Or is this something out of the norm? I am looking to find someone in my area that will kinda guide me in training him, Like going to the trainer once a week or so and learning the steps first hand. I really like this dog and have a fear that I just won't be doing things right to help him learn and prosper as a good hunting dog? What is your take on this? Maybe I am better off sending him to a trainer but that is not my preference.
