AJT this guy is not far from me AT ALL!! I actualy lokoed into them when I was browsing breeders but his prices were too high for me. Which is the same with his training classes. He is pretty decorated and I am sure he does a phenominal job and I kinda wish I could afford the extra $800 to train him (1 on 1 private even though they offer train and board same price). The place we are going to go in Lakewood is about $145 for the same level (basic ob) for the same length of time. I really apreciate the input though, and that guy really has some good looking dogs!!

We used Clever K-9 through the advancedobedience, Canine Good Citizen,and Therapy dog. You really can't beat them for the quality of training and price.

you have to be dedicated and consistent with your training.
getting up extra early to train is the way to go. when you come
home from work train. before bedtime get in a cuple of training
sessions. if your wife could train that would be very helpful.
if you make the time to train and socialize and find a trainer
you're going to have a well trained dog. having a well trained,
highly socialized dog is a total inconvenience but it's so worth
it. once you overlook the inconvenience and sacrifice it's
a peice of cake.

Ok, if you really want to train and have fun with your dog, then agility is what I recommend.

Here are some other classes/clubs that may (or may not ) be in your area...

ALL of these are top facilities with great trainers but they are also all different...

JAG Dog Agility Club

Go Dog Agility

www.Speedoggie.com - Performance Dog Training

Have you looked into Bayshore Companion Dog Club? They should be pretty close to you. Bayshore Companion Dog Club

I teach at Princeton Dog Training Club, which isn't actually in Princeton it's in Griggstown. But I know many of the people at Bayshore, they have both competition and pet obedience classes, and agility. Plus they are in the process of building their own full time training facility, which is definitely a rare commodity in NJ!

Morris K9 Campus is definitely WAY too far a drive (and not a good drive either!), and from what I've been told they no longer have obedience classes except for very basic pet classes.

I've also heard good things about both Princeton and Bayshore....

Thanks DunRingill for recommending those.

I am looking for a trainer/club that I can work with a lot. I am in the Essex area of NJ. I want to do as much as possible with Easton and I already take him every where. He is almost 12 weeks old. Any good ideas are very welcome.

Any of the places recommended above look like they would work?

That is who we did puppy kindegarten and STAR puppy with. I am signing him up for the January Basic OB course there as well. I think they have agility as well. I was pleased with the training we got and the rice wasn't bad. Thanks for reassuring my decision!
