Trainers, Helpers in E. OH, N.WV, W. PA. N. MD
Recommendations please? Trainers, clubs, etc. We are not newbies but are novices. We want to learn & grow. We do know the value of a good helper as well. Want to establish a good beginning base for dogs.
Looking for IPO mainly. Already looked on USCA for member clubs- if anyone can relay any experiences with any? not looking for negative or slam comments just decent advice.
**Non USCA clubs & Private Trainers are fine too.
Understood there are different training methods under different famed trainers & their methods.
Will do the "pre-visits" or any of the protocol needed for clubs. I realize the need to do so. Looking for a nice group of folks or individual to train with. Have visited some - but thought I would save some gas $
Have tried to contact a few of the western PA suggested trainers but after a few wks of sending emails & leaving voicemails, we never received any correspondence in return. Had a few promises but the others didn't follow through or there was far too much "name calling", games & sniping for us.
We have tough skin & can deal with some but not what we were hearing & seeing.
Willing to put in the hard work & commitment needed for the long haul.
