Need puppy trainer in San Diego!
Pup is now 17weeks, and about to finish her last week of "preschool" puppy training. She did fine, but I have never done positive reinforcement training with any of my previous dogs, and am not feeling ready to switch to training completely solo.
I also am unsure about the preschool trainer, who when I approached her with questions about pup getting very distracted outside, and about jumping up on people, was adamant that just using a Gentle Leader would fix all problems, and had no actual training suggestions other than "pulling her away" with the GL.
(Having never used a gentle leader, I am trying it per trainers suggestion, but would have preferred advice about a method rather than just a control tool).
Anyone got any recommendations for trainers for the SD area - specifically near Tierrasanta, although I'm willing to drive a fair distance (within reason)?
TIA for any suggestions!
