ISO a Retriever Trainer
« on: July 14, 2019, 09:25:35 AM »
Looking for a retriever trainer for a 6 month old lab. We are located in Western Washington but would consider other areas of the state. Just wondering who others have used and what their experience was like.

Look up Pat Murphy at NW Performance Dogs in Monroe. He has trained two of my labs for hunting. Pat gets great results and is an easy guy to talk to. On the East side look up Sean Issac at Tri Lab kennels.

After seeing what Conway Kennels is doing with a friendís dog, Iído look hard at their operation.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Thank you. Iíll try those out. Weíve left a few messages with Conway Kennels the past couple of weeks but havenít heard anything back. Wonder if they may be booked. Gives me a couple of places to start looking.

Another nudge for Conway Kennels.  My pup Pepper has been there for a month now.  I joined in on a training session Saturday.  I'll be part of her training now until she's ready to come home in a few months.   PM coming your way Skagit.

Doug Burnett @ Cook Canyon trained Maggie and I was very happy with the results.

Good to know. My neighbor has his lab there now for a breeding. Will have to ask about it.

Mckenna kennels is now taking gundog clients. Gundog trainer is experienced and does a nice job with youngsters.  Good place for folks in south end
