Also seeking a trainer in Seattle
We have a new 9 month old WGSD who is rather fearful, looking for a good trainer in Seattle area. My 12-year old WGSD was trained with prong collar, but no hitting/etc. our trainer did not use the food -intensive methods and we had very good consistent results. I am concerned about "positive only " trainers who don't use prong collars at all, but am willing to try something new if it's based on other GSD owners positive experience. we hope to do some rally or nose work with Sunny eventually & are interested in private sessions over group classes. she did not have much training at the breeder. any suggestions would be appreciated!
