Dog trainer near Hampton Roads VA?

Postby A5Gunner » Tue Sep 10, 2013 1:37 pm

So I have this dog I am trying to train but I am just making too many mistakes and I don't have the resources like live birds that a lot of training programs require. I would like some professional help (and some for the dog too :lol3: ). Is there anybody near the Chesapeake - VB area that trains retrievers? I just wasnt a good hunting dog, not a field trial dog. Given her personality heavy handed methods probably won't work well with this dog. Any suggetions?

Thanks

I don't know of any very close but there are several a little west of you. Jim Elam in Warrenton,Jamie Farmer near South Boston and Dave Burton(me) in Semora NC(close to Danville). There are plenty in Eastern NC as well. Dave Wilson,John Weller, Richard Reese(I heard Richard may be retiring) to name a few.

Give Dave (labman63) a call. He turned my pooch into a duck hunting machine. He knows what he's doin no doubt and probably only about 3 hours from you.
