    For training there is also Autumn Retrievers with Tom and Katie Quarles in the Seattle area.

    If you decide you might like to either train your retriever yourself or learn more so you can maintain your dog once it has been Pro trained, consider taking one of Mike Lardy's Retriever Training workshops. Our club is hosting two of Mike's workshops next year, just over the boarder from you in Aldergrove BC. We've arranged two back to back 4 day workshops; Basics June 21-24 and Advanced June 28-July 1st. I believe this is the first time this has been done, certainly the first in Canada and I believe too, first time Mike has conducted workshops on the West Coast (lower 49).

    Registration opens in December from Mike's website. Or you can PM me for details.

    Default looking for trainer

    I purchased a Sportdog 400S collar and am looking for a reputable trainer to help me train my dog on this collar. I live in Kirkland, WA near Seattle. I have not had any luck tapping into the hunting community since I don't hunt. I did call Cabella's to see if they knew of someone, but they were unable to help me. Would anyone know of a trainer in my area that would be willing to assist me in training my dog. He is a Redbone Coonhound/Plott Hound mix that I rescued at 6months of age. He had had no training when I got him and I have done my best to get him fairly well trained but need greater assistance in getting a 100% recall. I have had him now for 2 years.

    Autumn Retrievers, Tom and Katie Quarles Arlington WA. (360) 691-2650. Highly recommend these hard working folks as excellent trainers who will help you identify your goals, and will constantly evaluate your dogs potential to reach them.

    Hi Ann, I recommend you start your own thread to ask for help. I feel for you, trying to find a trainer. Most likely the folks who have responded are responding to the OP and did not notice that the thread is old, and that you are looking for help training a hound.

    I got nothing, except I have met the Quarles and they seem fine.
