I have a 9 month old black lab. Looking for someone to help me with training or if you know of anyone in the marshall area that does training for obedience and collar conditioning. He's got a great instinct for hunting just need to brush up on the other skills.Any help would be great

I've heard nothing but good things about that place Boiler... Two friends of mine just got dogs from him too. One a Lab and the other a Springer and they are both quite happy.

i would also recomend thad. my lab came from blondie's litter. he definitely knows his stuff. she's me first dog by myself and the ability and obedience has been awesome. he's been answering any questtion that i've had for him. he's very passionate too. anyone else see him on berrata's bird hunter's journal(not sure on sp) the HSOforum is the kennel name.

Aw shucks M.Time, you can do that stuff yourself. Unless you have a time problem. Remember, nine months is still young. Maybe you are expecting too much, if you have not worked with the dog a lot. Got a book? Got a video? Get one, a book preferably. Go slow. Go gentle and I'll bet you will be surprised at how good a trainer YOU are! Trust me my friend, you CAN do it. But it you just don't have TIME, thats another thing.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I recieved an email from thad, nice guy an all but am going to try to do some more myself and see how far i can get with him and hopefully be able to do it myself. If all else fails I'll have to try a trainer.

Good man!! Read, study and then go slow. Sometimes your dog is gonna help you; watch him, see how he wants to do something HIS way. Then incorporate what YOU want him to do into that move. See what I mean? And when you SHOW him what you WANT....make it clear and then do it the same every time.

Some patience and YOU will be your dogs best trainer. Give us a report in three months. wink.gif

    • If things in there were actually a bargain they might’ve moved more stuff.  I’ve picked up a couple things there but not more than 5-10% of the times I’ve visited it.   The pricing coupled with the “as is” , no returns policy kept me a bit gun shy of making it a viable source of gear.
    • At least you’re settling for three strikes and you’re out!   Tough start but at least you know now and have a chance to rebound in some way.  Hopefully you can at least get that late season hunt on the “old” property.  Always tough when the permission starts fading after working and and getting to know a good property.
    • Looks like severe heartburn to me!😄
    • As stated for the above reasons....I totally agree.  I can tell you this much, I also hunt late into the season if I am not tagged out, and I loosen my sling more so my thick gloves will slide through it and I can grip my bow.  I have always shot with one, so i can't speak to shooting without one.  I get a piece of mind having it that I can relax my grip and now worry about the bow "jumping" out of my hand,
    • Antsy?  That would be an understatement.  I got out bow hunting 1 time last year due to the job I was working at the time.  That job is history and am now working a job that will allow me to hunt as much as I used to.  Last month has been pretty much a disaster.......the land that we hunt on, first when we went in to kill the areas for the food plot, the guy running the sprayer decided it would be a good idea to put Roundup on the clover plot I put in last year.  It was thick and awesome and I could tell the deer were just hammering it.  Mostly does and fawns, couple small bucks, but hey, when the does need a man, he usually shows up.  Needless to say, I was a little upset when this happened.  Almost lost it when the guy got done spraying the plot and then drove over to me and said "I killed that plot, we should plant a clover or chicory plot there".  Just shook my head and walked away.  Strike one......then about 2 weeks ago the owner of the property informed us that we would no longer be able to bow hunt on his land.  Only muzzleloader, and that's only if they are completely tagged out by then.  STRIKE TWO........so I just planted over 200 dollars worth of seed in food plots that I may never even get to hunt over.  STRIKE THREE!!!!   So now I am in scramble mode to try and find some private land to hunt or start getting out to scout public land in hopes to find a good spot.  All i can do is make the best out of it and hopefully things work out the best.  Either way.....I'm going to up a tree somewhere and totally loving the experience of sitting in the woods with mother nature, with a huge smile on my face!!!!
