    Default ken bora told me to say hi!!!

    hey everyone, names Gary. im a sgt in the us army, going on 8 yrs active time. i just recently moved to ft leonard wood missouri and found duck hunting. i have two black labs that are 7 months old. im wanting to train them myself and i am looking for someone that has experience and would be willing to help me out with any questions or problems i run into. maybe show me a thing or two so i know im doing it right Also, here is my biggest problem right now. i am leaving to go to iraq agian soon and will be gone for a year so my dogs will lose most of the progress we have made. i dont have the money to send them to some exspensive dog training ranch, and i dont think my wife will be able to keep up the training much. please let me know if someone can help me out. atleast when i get back.

    Hey there Gary,

    Welcome to RTF! I thanked you on the FlashChat, but again, I want to sincerely express my gratitude for your ongoing service to our country.

    I hope that you have a very safe, fast-passing tour in Iraq this time around. (I believe you wrote that this is your third?)

    The state of Missouri has lots of good dog folk from North to South, East to West. When you get back, if your labs are ready for some work, you'll find something that best fits at that time.

    Good luck, stay safe!

    Chris
