Tipping Dog Trainers

4 posts in this topic

I have a question concerning tipping of dog trainers. My dog is at "camp" for training. Do I tip the trainer when I pick him up? I have tipped other guides for good service. I looking for some guidence here.

I think if you feel that it looks as though he did a bang up job or got more out of your dog than originally expected, a tip would probably be appreciated. ANother time that may pay big dividends is if you plan on returning with the pooch for some advance training.

Maybe look at picking up a $50 gift card to Gander Mountain or Cabelas. Those seem to stick in their head more than slipping a couple twentys into their pocket.

Good Luck!

I totally agree with Ken, If you think he did an awesome job with rover, let him know it with a little extra. I know they get paid for what they do but some really go out of their way for you.

Thanks for the great advice. I am looking foward to picking up the camper in a couple of weeks. Do you think sending him a dog biscit at camp is a bad thing? Just kidding

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow
