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

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!

      I herd some lakes in the BWCA were still in good shape as of Monday but I'm sure that changed by now.

      Your best bet is to go some place like Cabela's or fleet farm. Look at what they got find what you like as far as price style and color and try them if there not what you like exchange them. I would definitely say boat seats are a "you get what you pay for" you buy a $40 seat it's probably going to be junk while a $100 seat will last a lot longer and be made better. Hope this helps!
