    Default GSP trainers in the SE?

    I have a friend with a 9 month old GSP. He is a little nutty but when I work with him he settles, minds and focuses fine. She decided to send him to a GSP hunting trainer, and I believe he has been there for 2 to 3 weeks now. My friend called today upset because she got a video from the trainer basically showing the dog running around sniffing leaves and showing no interest in the bird in the trap/release.

    The trainer said he would give it another week, but didn't think this dog "had it in him" to be a hunting dog. Which is weird to me because when she dropped the dog off, he pointed to a bird and the trainer was really excited about him.

    So I know this is a retriever forum, but I have met retrievers that need encouragement to get into retrieving, and help to start being excited about birds...it seems to me this trainer must be doing something off if the dog isn't getting excited about a bird on the ground? She says he'll chase the cat around her house just fine, so he has prey drive, lol.

    Any thoughts? Any GSP trainers in the SE you can recommend she try for a 2nd opinion? (Feel free to PM me good/bad etc.) We are in north GA.

    Thanks!
