Getting to know people in the local area that have retriever training experience will be great. I have access to a number of different private and public properties to train. The club I train with now, meets once a month. I will be ale to do some things with the new pup there while I continue to do more field work with my Setter. I genuinely enjoy training and learning about training methods that I am unfamiliar with. I think this will be a fun adventure with a new pup.
Darrin, I can't PM you yet do to my low post count. If you think of it, would you PM me your email address and I will reach out to you. Thanks for the help.
