Excuse me if this isn't the correct forum for training questions but I didn't see a dedicated spot.

I have a 4 month old German Short Hair Pointer that I want to send to obedience training in the Fall and this is all new to me. Anyone have recommendations on places to start with some good obedience training?

I've heard about Landmark Retrievers in Ennis from someone who had their dog trained there but was looking for other possible good places to investigate before we make a decision.

Thanks,

At 4 months I would just work on basic obedience on your own. Like sit, stay, heel, play fetch etc. This winter I would try an put him on a bunch of birds and see how he does.

What kind of goals do you have for this pup? What do you want this dog to be able to do when hes finished?

at 4 months, don't over do, go as much as he lets you know, "have to be smarter than the dog"


hold on Newt, we got a runaway

Thanks for the input. Has anyone heard of a trainer in the Argyle area - Ronnie somebody? Someone told me about him but didn't have his info and I forgot the last name.

I have used "Mans Best Friend" for obedience on two different dogs with excellent results. My GSP was about 4 months as well.
