Are there ANY decent trainers/clubs in Ohio?

There is only ONE listed PSA trainer in this area, and they have some negative reviews... even going so far as saying that the "lead" trainer/owner has lied about his military service. I really want to get into the PSA thing, but if there isn't a good club around I don't see this happening. So secondary is finding a decent trainer to begin with. I went to one Schutzhund group years ago and they refused to even let my dog work with dogs his age because they said he was a "show dog" and they all had sables. My new guy is Czech, but I don't want to go work with dog snobs. That same dog went on a sleeve for the first time at several years old and impressed the heck out of the helper who was in from another city. Again, though, my dog was snubbed by other club members. I want to join a friendly club, and if that isn't possible then I'd like to at least find a good trainer who doesn't lie about his capabilities or charge you your first born for puppy class. Anyone out there from near or in Ohio?

Isn't Dan Cox' club in Cincinnati? He's a good working dog trainer.

Dan has Wildcat in KY - also in another club near Cincinnatti but over the border.....Wildcat is small and very very competition oriented....

How about Jürgen and Katharina Oster? They are in Grove City, Ohio, and I've seen them at showline and working venues so they could probably help you. Very nice helpful people. You should msg him on facebook and ask.

Ohio is a big state. I know some good ones, but it depends where you live.

Lee: Did they go back for good?? I know they went for the working dog competitions in Slovenia, but I thought they were just dropping off Crok and returning.

I was told for good.....too bad, they were close enough that we could work with them....Jurgen wanted to take Jagr with him but Kristi won't give him up!
