Dog training school opinions?!
So I am looking to go to dog training school within the next year. I have really gotten involved in training within the last couple years and I would love to further educate myself! I am currently looking at The Tom Rose school here in Missouri about 20 min from my house or The Michael Ellis School in California! I have heard good things about both schools. My concerns are that I have heard that The Tom Rose school's methods can be more forceful to puppies at times and I have seen alot of puppies with pinch collars on at a pretty young age. I realize that you only have a certain time to get them to the point they are needed to pass, Other than that I have heard ALOT of good things about them as well. The Michael Ellis school in California, I have heard nothing but good things about it! My only problem is it so far away from me. I would be gone for roughly 2 months and I would have to pay for hotels/food/travel. Does anyone have any experiences with either schools?? Thanks!
