    Some people get frustrated with some of the bickering and conflicting advise you get on RTF, but to me, this 'family' aspect of going out of your way to help someone is what makes RTF a great resource. Sharon Potter offered to help someone hands on, on another thread, now this. Skinny, you owe it to your dog to take that drive and very generous offer by Mike.

    E mail to make arrangements if you wish.
    Plan B There are several pros near Tuscaloosa that might help you for a fee. It will be worth your time and $ to get some assistance.

    There you go. Go see Mike or another pro in person and plan on leaving the dog for a few months. The way you are going there is no doubt you don't have the experience or knowledge to do this yourself. Mike has made a great offer and I would suggest you take him up on it.

You need a live person, near by, Pro or Am, to point you in the right direction.
    This is the best answer as others have given you in their posts. You need to learn how to use the collar and CC her to the commands. There must be a pro in your neck of the woods you can go over for training? Go for it!!!!Good luck!!

    There are pros closer than 90 miles. A quick look and I know of two within 30 miles. If interested in names send me a message. Sure they would charge you that is how they make their living. Both are in Louisville ms area. There are plenty of trainers not far from you if you want to find them. Good luck. Most make mistakes training, how you correct your mistake is what can save you. Get some live help from someone who knows how to help. Take Mike's offer or call one of the pros nearby.
