I am new here and was wondering if any of you could help me in answering some questions. I am looking for any gun dog trainers in WI (closer to the east side of WI) and was wondering if anyone could help point me in a direction. Also I was wondering what the requirements were to even start looking at trainers. I currently have 2 Labs (8 months and 7 months and 1 week) who were never prof. trained. I have done all the training myself and they are very smart but I was wondering what basics they would need to know before sending them off? I decided it might be time to look for a trainer since I lack the knowledge in Field Training as well as the land and equipment. On this note, I was also wondering if anyone could give me a price range since I would want to send both my dogs. I also haven't reg. my dogs with AKC because I just planned on having my boys as good hunting dogs, but anything beyond that would be great.
Thanks in advance!
