How much should I invest in my dog?
So I was just wondering how much you guys spent on your dogs training wise. I would like to have my pup trained in the 3 phases of IPO eventually. And I want to be able to trust that he can do each job pretty much whenever I ask him. Correct me if im wrong but when testing for IPO you have to test for each level. You cant just get a high enough score and be given ipo3. How much does each test typically cost? And is there ever a time where you stop training with a trainer and do it yourself or do you always train with a trainer. I feel like after you have worked with a professional trainer you begin to pick up things and become efficient in training your dog.
