Yikes. I'm searching around looking for obedience classes today for my 4 month old lab. Just got off the phone with a guy that sounded awesome UNTIL he said I would be leaving my puppy at his kennel for 2 WEEKS. He would train her one on one for 2 weeks and then he would teach me how to be her leader. What do you think about that??? NO WAY could I be apart from her for 2 weeks. Not only that, I was hoping to get her in a class situation where she could learn, and also be with other dogs. He sounds very professional, but I just couldn't do that. Not to mention, it is REALLY expensive. Anybody here have any thoughts or experiences with something like this?
