Iris is 12 1/2 weeks old and I'm looking for a good referral for an obedience trainer here in Orange County, California. I've looked through the yellow pages and called a few places. 6 week private classes run between 500 and 600 dollars. What I'd really like to attend, are group training classes, but these classes are not offered on Saturdays and conflict with my work schedule. Some trainers I spoke with actually want to take my dog away for 4 weeks to train, but I know I don't want to do that. I've received offers via e-mail for dog training methods such as Dean Rankin who says "These are the Doberman-Pinscher "secrets" professional dog trainers don't want you to know"! This one I believe costs 45 dollars. Any suggestions are appreciated!
