    DefaultSerious Question/ Training Tuck

    So- hubby and I are talking about training Tuck. The closest obedience classes I can find are 1 hr away.
    There is a place closer, but you drop your dog off and they train him/her. puppy obedience and hunting.
    Hubby says he would pay for her to do this. I don't want to have her Away from home, even to be trained. And- i would like to be involved! Is this a wrong outlook for me to have? I just want to be involved not taking her, and leaving her 4-6 weeks. :-\ Yes, it would be nice to have her all trained, and ready to hunt, but.. i wanted to do it. Hubby says hes not sure i can do it, but if i can-- more power to me.
    UG! Should i make the drive and $$ to do it with her, or take her to a place?

    If it's possible for you to do it with her, that's the route I would take.

    Best of luck...........

    Do the training yourself, at least initially - you won't regret it.

    Go with her and train your dog!! I find it much more rewarding and I think you will too. I have traveled 1.5 to even 2 hours for weekly dog classes.
    I think a huge amount of what is taught in classes is taught to the OWNER not the dog. The dog usually "gets it" sooner than the human ever does.

    I found a few places closer to me. I think we are going to start one class in January. And then i am going to take her to one in Broken Arrow, OK one time a week starting in Jan too. Thanks for all your advise.!

    I agree with everyone in saying that training your own dog is part of the bonding and the rewarding experience of dog ownership
