Thanks Ed, I have been reading, researching and watching training dvds for the last 4 months trying to get myself ready. I am going to join the local training group to help Reed and I along the way. Thanks for all the kind words!Andrew,
That was me 6 months ago. I can say from experience, you are in for a fun time! As for your training since this is your first pup, start training yourself. Still after six months it seems like my pup "Storm" is picking things up and learning quicker than I am. Great looking dog and have a fun time training.
I am by no means a pro training, or even a novice for that matter but I do have some current first hand experience (one novice trainer to another) if you have any questions.
