Bear is what, around four months old? Why do you think this will be good for Bear? I'm sure you posted looking for reassurance, but I never get why people feel they need to send a pup away. A pup's attention span is so short, not sure what the trainer will be doing with Bear all day. Formal training should only be a few minutes a day. I don't know anything about this trainer, he may be wonderful and really give the dogs he works with a rich and rewarding experience but why send him away?

Did you look into puppy/basic obedience classes for you to attend WITH Bear? Nothing magic that the trainer will be doing with Bear that you can't learn to do yourself with a good class and a good instructor.

That place is near me. And I looked up the link, says its all positive reinforcement. But either way, I don't understand what they can do in that amount of time that you can't learn to do? Why not take a class WITH your dog with them? Build your bond, learn how to work with your dog, instead of paying someone else to do it? Your going to miss out of 5 weeks of bonding time. I would never send my dog away to anyone for training.

I did it and I'd do it all over again. One of the best things I could have done for my dog and I at that time. Everyone's situation is different.

I couldn't do it. I'd rather work hard and see my own hard work pay off... plus, can't imagine putting my boy in somebody else's hands.

I'm sure time will fly for you.

Srdl9886, you've made a very good choice. They are the best trainers in So Cal. Money and time well spent. I know first hand

You are correct Capone, they do use nothing but positive reinforcement. There is Never any aggressive training.

They will send you updates and pictures if you ask. They are very good at that.
