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!
I thought the same thing. And I train my own dogs via ME method. But when getting out into the real world to train regular everyday people. Your going to use more corrections, earlier on than say someone who is experienced or does sports. Most people are impatient, they want results quickly and they usually call u at the end of their rope. For some reason, many do not grasp the marker system very easily. I don't know why, I've worked with several people on this. But they don't. Of course I get a few that do well, but majority do not grasp it. Their timing sucks, thy forget what to say, they get frustrated etc. Find people who are graduates of Tom rose and currently working as a trainer for the public and talk to them about it. I know one on FB is controlled chaos. Good luck.
