    Question: Dog trainer

    Can anyone recommend a good retreiver trainer on the eastern end of the state? I would like to send my lab off to training when she is around 6 months old. I would like to keep it as cheap as possible but dont want to skimp on the training so will pay as much as I have to for a good one. Let me know what ya got.

      Just an hour North of Omaha, plus depending on the time frame, you could probably shoot and/or hunt out there when you check on/pick up your dog. Trent the GM is a great guy. I actually helped at the BDC they held out there this year and they have a top notch facility.

        Personally I would spend the money on a good electronic collar and train her myself. Lots of info out there. The bond you get with them spending the time with them can't be beat. They have so much instinct it isn't that hard. The hard part is the shooting part and taking the time to train.
        Just my 2 cents.

          I am still kicking around the idea of training her myself. I have watched fowl dawgs multiple times and it seems fairly simple, but I just don't know if I can make the time commitment. Thanks for the recommendations guys.

              Dale Taylor at Premier Gun Dog did a awesome job on my lab, has a light hand compared to some other trainers I have met. Last I knew he was in the Hallam area.

                If you have time to own a dog, you have time to train. 15 minutes a day. Just picked up a semi-started dog, and wish I would have started with a puppy and trained it myself. Using Fowl Dawgs myself. If you do send the dog off, don't skimp. The good trainers will be booked well ahead of time and will be $500++/mo.

                If I don't work him, I have to walk him twice a day anyway. Might as well teach him something in the process! And I have spent enough of my life without a dog, no need to waste 5 more months without him!

                  Well enough people are telling me that its not as hard as it sounds so I'm feeling a lot more confident in doing it myself. I already spend wayyyy more than 15 minutes a day with her anyways so it shouldnt be a problem.

                    Get involved with a local hunting retriever club and do it yourself with help and advice from club members.

                        I can personally recommend Bud Close of Dublem Gundogs in Plattsmouth.

                          These 2 clubs are an excellent option if you decide to train your own dog. Lots of knowledgable members that are willing to help you.
