    Thanks!

    I started her with live flyers and a long check cord. Lots of praise on return. Trainer did not want any obedience work done by me and no pressure. Just wanted prey drive instilled. Trainer for the first month will work on obedience only. sit, stay, heal, here, whistle sit. Second month is force work. Third month is field work,whistle training and casting. Rest will be finished by myself with his guidience and grounds.

    Jeff Latour at Elk River Kennels. Great trainer and good price. He opens up his grounds in the summer on Tuesdays for anyone who wants to come and use his grounds. 763-263-6200

    Great decision! My boy came back a different dog. Obedient and loving work like never before. All subsequent trips to the trainer for lessons are excellent; he LOVES his trainer which says so much about how he was treated when there. Good luck. Oz

    Yellow-

    I had a great conversation with Jeff yesterday and I am going to take the pup and my wife out to meet him in a week or so. Can you give me any other feed back on him? Have you worked with him before?

    Be sure to get your trainer to show you how to run the dog.

    Jeff let me use his grounds all fall and winter. He would watch and tell me how I was doing. Jeff gave me specific instructions on what to work on the first six months and that was huge to me. Also he get a dog in that was ready to go in training and was not screwed up by a owner that instilled bad habits. Other pros were not as inviting as Jeff was. Come out this summer on Tuesdays and we can train together. I dont have a ton of answers but have some. I am learning as you will. Yes Lonnie I will get instructions on how to run the dog at games. I do not want to be the newbie others laugh at.

    Thanks Yellow. I will give you a call tonight, hopefully. I cannot PM you because I need more posts. I will definetly come and train with you on Tuesday nights. When your dog is in training with Jeff, how often are you going to go see her and work with her and Jeff?

    Saxxx, Get your pup on live birds and start building the prey drive. Best thing you can do with a young one. I will be out working with jeff in about three weeks and you are more than welcome to come see what he did with my pup through four weeks. Remember it is about training the handler and the dog. My pups name is Belle. Jeff has some live flyers he can sell you and grounds to work. You will be amazed at his grounds. Ponds, grassy fields, short grass land, woods. I am going crazy waiting for spring to hit to get some good work in. See you this spring.
