He has a wonderful reputation in the area and we did meet with him and really felt that he was genuine. He spent time with Dublin and told us out straight that she didnt' need his level of "hands on" training. I like that about him. he gave us great tips and never asked for a penny. I think it might be the same person you are referring to.
    That was two years ago and I know if I googled him right now I would know who it is. If you private message me I can certainly tell you who not to spend. our money on in the area. Dont' want to put it on here. I love Taylor's advice and everyone here just has a wealth of information to share. I feel you need more but as everyone says no matter how much training and help you get, you must be able to follow up and stay focused and consistent. I do think you need some kind of break right now and the investment of money may be worth it for both of you. Again private message me and I will gladly reply..Ann


    i think i pm'd you...hope i did it right lol

    that is a fair price..... have you thought of that... you may only need an hour. do they charge for follow up or is it part of the 125 fee?

    They said an hour won't do squat. They also offer a 4 hr drop off for 125 but they said that since he doesn't know anything other than sit (when there's no distractions). He would need more. But I'm taking him tomorrow for a free evaluation at the center.

    I have done the training boot camp thing for my Rotty, Moses. It was called "guard dog boot camp" or something like that. Rotts and GSDs. I was miserable. My dog was gone for about a month. I was allowed to "visit" and see his progress. I didnt like that he stayed in an outdoor kennel, but they seemed to have taken very good care of him. And he did learn stuff and retained some of it when he got home. I think I sent him there at about 6 months old, he was big, but he could have been a little younger. The reason we sent him there was for obedience before he got too big and strong.

    Like people have already said, even if you do send Tank to a boot camp (I don't suggest you do, speaking from experience), it's still going to be up to you to maintain the training. If there is a 1-on-1 option in your home, then I'd definitely choose that. And it has to really be consistent.

    What types of training have you tried? Have you tried clicker training with irresistable treats? They must be irresistable to work.

    Ok so we just left our behaviour consult w Tank and we were told he's a pretty good boy overall and they think 1 session in our home would solve most our minimal issues!!!! WHEW!!!! So thankful for their honesty. So now I get to go home and fill out his registration papers for our visit! I'll keep u all posted. Thank you for all your input !!! Happy mama I am. Just not a good trainer lol . But it's a learning process.

    So happy it went well and they were honest, that kind of worried me. So sounds like you are on your way. Let us know how the first training goes.
