This is a two part post, which is why I posted here.
For those of you who have taken your pups in for training, whether they were one on one sessions or in-kennel training, what are your thoughts? Guess I'm looking for more advice from those who have done in-kennel training.
Our pup Maximus is 7 and a half months old and I would like to take him in for formal training. He knows most of the basic commands and listens "most" of the time
But he started getting aggressive towards others recently when he's lose in the yard and someone passes the yard, whether they are jogging, walking another dog, etc. And gets overly excited when someone comes into the house (could be me, my daughter, neighbor for the afternoon potty break, etc) and forgets all his manners and could care less about listening
It seems like basic OB issues that I'm dealing with and haven't been able to control.
I contacted the breeder but they don't have any recommendations for a trainer in the area and I have to find someone myself. I've searched here, but most of the inquiries/advice are years old.
I've read a lot of positive aspects of in-kennel training, but a lot of horror stories as well... also the price is of concern. I've seen pricing anywhere from $500 to $3000... I'm not looking for protection training, just good obedience training.
Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated.
