I thought this was a guy that I went to a Bernard Flinks seminar with, but it is not. If nobody posts information, I'll shoot an e-mail to some people out that way that I went to the seminar with and get opinions for you.

Never heard of it but I dunno. I'm on the fence. Did you see the basic price for retrieve?

Basic Retrieving/Tracking
Averaging 10 sessions at $150/hour

Um...is that a misprint? 10x150 = 1500. That's crazy.

They don't post their prices for regular basic classes either. Seems everything is personal sessions, not group sessions which I guess is a personal preference to whomever.

What's up with the dogs for sale too? Is this how lots of training facilities work?

$25 dollar fee just for an over the phone eval.

Re: Cleveland OH, anyone familiar with this traine

I only did a quick read of the site, but I thought that those were prices for if he did the training himself instead of in class


I'm pretty certain I'm going to use K9-U but I was curious about this trainer because he / they are based in the Cleveland area and I'd never heard about them before.

I've never heard of them. But I would be very skeptical of someone selling "fully obedience trained on/off leash" dogs that are only 4-9 months old.

No kidding!
At 8 months Flash is starting to get ballsy enough to test his boundaries (and make my blood boil in the process). He's just at that age. I imagine the only way to have a "fully trained, on/off leash" pup of that age is to basically scare them into being robots scared to blink, let alone act like *gasp* a puppy/dog! That's sad, actually.

I did K9-U for puppy classes and you read my thread on that. I'm going to try the cleveland all breed one for obedience and I'll let you know how that goes.

Re: Cleveland OH, anyone familiar with this traine

I go to Cleveland all breed for obedience and conformation. I have been told it is not gsd friendly, but I find everyone helpful and consistant.

I don't care for petsmart or k9-u

Chasethedog, Wrenny shared his opinion about K9-U's puppy classes with me. I was still considering the adolescent pup classes with them. Can you share which age group / classes did not agree with you? Also, could you elaborate on not being "shepherd friendly"?

I found this one. It was in todays paper. They are mainly for ohio dog training but they have a family dog training section too. So I sent them email for further info including rates and schedule.

The Family Dog section looks interesting. For a minute I thought they only did corrective training, but they offer basic and advanced obedience too. Please post your findings once they email you back

The whole shepherd being aggressinve thing lingers with some folks. I took a household class that insisted that I alpha role my 6mos puppy to control his behavior and show I'm boss, before he "turns on me." Sometimes I hate seeing them with their whipped goldens.

But I do really like the obedience and conformation judges.

Re: Cleveland OH, anyone familiar with this traine

I'm still on the fence with k9 since half the time we had two different instructors which was bad. One was great with training and the other just wasn't a people person.

Anyways. Excel emailed me back. They offer that training but its mostly private lessons, 75$ an hour. So it's not an actual class.
