My boy is currently with a trainer for a board & train program for basic obedience & manners. He's been gone for 2 weeks and I'm missing him. I'm hoping I will get him back before Thanksgiving.

I decided to send him to a professional trainer (the same one I used with my last doberman) because I didn't think I could do as good a job and I wanted him to have good manners.

I'm new to this forum - got any good tips for me?

Welcome to the forum! My question is who is going to train YOU when your pup comes back? Did this work well with your last dog? I'm confused because "training" is an ongoing thing, not something you do for 2 weeks then call it good. Plus your training time with your pup is a bonding time too. Not judging, just haven't heard of this approach.

Yes, it worked well with my last doberman. I know it's not something you do for just 2 weeks. I was working/training with my pup, taking puppy classes, and will continue when he comes back but I also needed some extra help with certain things. Is it so wrong to send your dog to an obedience trainer?

Thanks for clearing that up. I can see now that you were doing the training too, and just needed the extra help. Your first post was so brief, it sounded like you were relying on the trainer, but I see now. I bet it is tough to be without your pup. I hope he comes home soon.
