    Default Need Recommendation for Wisconsin Trainer March 2013

    I'm looking for a recommendation for a Wisconsin based trainer for my 9 month female lab. We'll be spending March in AZ and no dogs are allowed. So it will be a good chance for my pup to learn from a pro and both undo the faults I've created and take her to a new level. I live just north of Milwaukee.

    Thanks

    Bruce Halverson of Crosswind Retrievers. Brooklyn, WI. From Basics Thru Transition, Bruce's track record is pretty good! Nevermind, just reread your post. Bruce is in Georgia until April.

    Most trainers are down south during your time frame. If they're not I don't think I'd be using them.

    Yes, you’re correct “Most” trainers are down South now. Some don’t have the luxury of doing that. We the ( WAFTC) winter training group headed up by Dick Reesman train all winter long running FT/HT marks and blinds. We sit out in the fields; dig out holes in the snow to throw birds. The young dogs coming in don’t need the South for odedience, ff, ccing, and other basics. The majority of these dogs are going to be gun dogs anyway.

    So you are throwing marks and running blinds for FT in the snow too?

    You can. I used to all the time as an amateur. We utilized resviors and lakes quite often. Ice shanty's make great hazzards.. Along with the fisherman.

    I wouldn't pay a pro for this kind of training. I would want water work done,,, not just land work.

    But that's me.
