Default Trainer and training classes in Milwaukee

Hi,

We just got another GSD, an 8 week-old puppy (we also have a 9 year-old)...we really want to avoid the over protective fear issues that we have with our oldest. Could anyone recommend any classes and in home training in Milwaukee? We are considering Bark Busters, but haven't heard good things about them on this forum, although it may be location specific.

NOOOO to Bark Busters! Google reviews for all the rip off reports on them.

Dennis T's would be the place I'd go if I were in your area. https://www.facebook.com/PetUniversity

Thanks! Are all bark buster trainers bad? We don't like some of the canned things we have heard they do, but weren't sure they were all the same.

Have you heard good things about Dennis?

Dennis is experienced, he is an SDA judge and knows the breed(he also breeds but not often). He's been to the other shore a few times/I've trained with him, let him work my dog.
I don't think you'd go wrong working with him.

I would reccomend Wild Canine. The humane society reccomended them to us. They train with a positive only philosophy if you are into that. I can PM you about our schutzhund group that meets 45 minutes away too if you like.

Is Dennis the trainer that only does it in house for 3-4 weeks, or does he do other types of training? My hubby talked to one that only trains where you send them away for a few weeks, but it was pretty expensive and it sounded like just the basic commands.

Thanks, yes please PM me the group information We have started using the clicker but have only found two trainers who use that method, one is over $100 for an hour, and the other one requires traveling to her.

PM me your email and I'll get you added to the list. That is probably the easiest way to get connected :-)

We always have fun at the humane society classes too, they are clicker based.

Thanks! I wasn't aware that humane societies had classes as well in WI. Which one offers those?
