    Default Pup Off To Training

    Just dropped off my 6mo YLF for training for three months. It's only been a few days and we miss her energy around the house. It is going to be a long wait. Im already bored. Can't wait to get her in the games this summer. Maybe we can give the pros a run for their money.

    She will be home again before you know it and by then the weather will be nice for training. Our dogs all love being at the trainer and getting all those extra birds!

    If the trainer is a good one you might leave the puppy alone and keep her in training until next spring or summer, not this one.

    "Smoke" Smokin Auggies Menace, QAA (2003- )(retired nut case, ask Rando)
    "Simba" Humewood Simba (1999-2014)(my 1st dog)

    Do not have golden pockets. 3 months max then it's up to me with the advice and grounds of the trainer. I love it that everyone thinks their dog can not be beat. Thats what makes the games so much fun!

    Yellow,

    Where are you taking your dog for training? I have a 12 week old lab and am looking into taking her somewhere around 6 months.

    Hey Yellow,

    Interested in where you left off with her training and what you and the trainer have agreed to getting/delivering over the 3 months while your dog is with the trainer.

    Thanks!
