I would look for a trainer in your area that specializes in working dogs...we were blessed enough to find a guy...who owns 4 mal's and 1 Czech...he has been doing it for many years, he knows the needs and is a pro at reading them! I can't tell you
How happy we are....he has taught us so much about the breed. I am sure if you tell people your area...they maybe able to point you in the right direction. We do drive an hour each for training...once a week....but it is soooo worth it!!!
Good luck finding someone to help you!

I'm happy I found this question as I am in the mist of deciding a board and train. My issue is more with a dominate dog issue, where my 15 month wants to move up in my pack, and has started to growl at my wife and daughter at strange times. More when they come by me and the dog is waiting for me or for somthing from me as I am his main handler.
I was able to get in touch with John soares and he likes my dogs make up but suggested taking him out of the environment to go back over leash work in a board and train for two weeks, then work with my wife on handling.
I really don't want to board him as one I will miss him, and two I enjoy working and training him daily. I just don't know how to train or correct this, so I'm looking for an expert.
I really want to do daily private training so I can be the one who learns how to comunicate better with my dog. He really is a good fun boy.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciate?

David Taggart, what country are you in? This can have a lot to do with one's experiences.
I have friends that do board and train. Most work with puppies, but some work with young and mature dogs. The dog gets some training at the trainer's house and then in-home work with the owners. I have done board and train too for a handler that "didn't do puppies". My job was to do the early imprinting work in tracking, basic manners, crate training.
Then there are the horror stories. I would always tell anyone looking to do board and train to do a lot of research and get references.

But like you said a good board and train.... And we all know that they're all not created equally..
It's so mind boggling some of the comments that are made on this site!!

Also, based on what I've read from you (and of course if I were able to meet you and discuss things with you etc), I would feel pretty confident leaving one of my dogs in your care if I needed to.

|Baillif||Let me let you guys in on a horrifying little secret. When you drop your dog off at a good board and train they do so much fun awesome stuff they dont miss you for a second. They will be happy to see you again when you pick them up, sure. But they get over you super quick, and if they never saw you again theyd be just fine.|

People get dogs all ages every day and the dogs are just fine. Sure, there is some adjustment and every dog is different, but in general I think dogs are pretty resilient creatures that genuinely want to be happy. You make them sound like they cannot function without being attached at the hip to their owner.
