Trying to find a new trainer in North West Ohio, my old trainer moved to Michigan to get back into sled dog racing.
I have found 3 that I think might work for us. The trainer would be for Zelda maybe, depending on her anxiety, definitely for our puppy we are getting around June. I am just not sure which one to pick. What are some questions I should ask/look for? Which do you think would work best for nervous/sensitive dogs.
I may end up choosing a couple of them just because of the different stuff they offer.
Trainer 1: Canine Bliss, https://www.caninebliss.com/
don't know much about them but they do have good reviews
Trainer 2: The gated docks (has a facebook page) offers obedience, dock diving and fast cats. Kind of leaning towards her, at least for Zelda. I did visit the place for the fast cats and dock diving and was told Zelda couldn't wear her prong collar on her property, so I don't know if her style is positive only? Didn't get a chance to talk to her as she was running the lure and we didn't stick around long since we had my toddler with us. She has good reviews
Trainer 3: North Coast K9 (has a facebook page) seems to be the best bet for training a working line GSD, experienced with them (also breeds) also works with police dogs and protection work, which is something my daughter is interested in doing. Reviews seem good, I think there was a couple negative, one being that the guy was rude, but the women is nice. Which is my only concern since my daughter has social anxiety, and tends to shut down if people are being to harsh on her.
Does anyone know of any other places to check out?
