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 website 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

      I wondered if I had stepped thru a time warp and  was back in 1997............really fun day today about 5.5 miles off the south shore. LOTS of action and some nice fish. Two overs and 2 nice keepers at 17" with 6 very nice saugers to fill the bucket, plus 1 sumo perch. Quite a few littles but the action from 10 to 2:30 was much like it used to be. Also several tullibees and they were the biggest I've seen here in a while. Zero fish jigging but glow pink Geminis and glow red Northland forage things were working very well. Wow, is that snow hard.......if it rains at all on Saturday, the snowpack will be like cement.   Good luck.

      Fished Pike Bay this afternoon and did ok, caught 3 walters and a ton of perch that we sorted through, ended up with a half a dozen solid keepers. Didn't move, set up in 19' and stayed there all day. Lots of folks out there tonight enjoying this beautiful weather.

      The real problem with jerky is it just does not last long? I try to store it to make it last longer and the next thing I know it's gone!  Who's eating it! My wife doesn't like it and I'm the only other one home.  Aliens or Big Foot?

      I agree with Rick.    I would not venture to any of the lakes with a current with a wheeler without knowing how the ice forms in these areas.   koetter, zumwalles, and Krays especially.   Plus the bridges or channels that connect them are usually not passable.      I have made it to the 2 cat holes in koetter but the entrance from cedar island is very dangerous.   You can get there from the winter access on cedar island.  about a 2-3 mile drive by wheeler.  (do not go near the bridge at the end of koetter   Don
