    Default Retriever trainers in Louisiana

    Does anyone know of a good trainer in Louisiana for hunting/hunt test dogs? Specifically one with experience with goldens as well would be great. Thanks

    I'm not sure about Goldens but I would try Eddie Sullivan just across the line in Miss...

    Ed Thibodeaux near Crowley, La has trained many MH's and hundreds of gun dogs. I read where he won a Q this past weekend. Great guy, with facilities to match. He's trained all breeds.

    or

    Jay Dufour in the Amite area.

    First dog I can remember Ed running, circa mid '80s, was a Golden named Reba.
    If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

    Chuck McCall in Gonzales has trained several GHRCH's, MH's and I believe won a Q last year with Boo.

    Jay Dufour is in Pine Grove, near Amite, I believe. Jay trains and runs HT/FT's. He was very helpful to me and went out of his way to volunteer some handling tips to me after watching a finished test. Nice to see someone give back to the sport like that and help the new guys out.

    ALL mentioned are good but I like Ed, since he was/is my mentor.
    Ditto the Golden he has, I did the basics on "Scooter" and he
    changed my mind about "FLUFFY" dogs. Even better is his
    owner pays the bills on time and is an accomplished surgeon.

    Go Scooter!!!
