    Default Looking for training partners

    Anyone in or around the Anchorage area looking for people to train dogs with on weekdays after work and on weekends? I work 7am-4pm Monday through Friday. I have bumpers, whistles, and wings. PM me or give me a call if you are interested. I live on Elmendorf AFB. 707-301-8705. Please no calls after 9pm.

    Hey. I did receive your message. Sorry you couldn't make it out this weekend.
    I'll add you to my call list.
    I'm loading some young client retrievers on the truck for some puppy marks tomorrow.
    Afterwards I may run some handling dogs on blinds.

    You too can give me a shout any time. I'll let you know what I'm doing for that day. Like I mentioned some days I have a handful of folks training and helping. Other days I may have up to 15 or so. Makes for a full day of training when the larger groups show up. But boy can we make it realistic and train on some interesting factors.

    I live near the base and work my dog over behind Bartlet high near the Muldoon gate. They are starting up football practice so the big field is in use until after 8:30pm, which works for me most of the time.

    I have a 11month old YLF that has been an OB nightmare for me. Mostly my issues rather than hers. Now that we have worked our way up through the pressure of pinch collar and a real healing stick we are into CC on the OB and she is doing much better. However, she needs to have OB with other dogs around and without a controlled group environment that is not working out for us. I have tried working with her in public places, but with the other dogs out of control she can't handle it and goes nuts.

    Tuesday and thursdays are not open due to family stuff, but Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays along with weekend afternoons and later I am can meet up with you.

    Are you going to the wednesday night retriever club Lardy video show at Birchwood?

    Cool, I'd be happy to come and train together. I do a lot of training on Elmendorf. There are some great lakes on the back of base to do some water work from and some really good fields to work in as well. I'd be happy to go off base too. I dont know what wednesday night retriever club Lardy video show at Birchwood is but if you give me a description, time, and place I should be able to make it. My dog is under control for the most part around other people and othe dogs. I would say she is completly under control but I made the mistake one time of telling someone she wouldn't break if someone threw a bumper and as soon as the words left my mouth she broke for it. First break in a year. I dont want her to make a liar of me again. I'll PM you about getting together to do some training.

    Baron, are you back in palmer? If so me and my animal of a dog would like to come out and do some more work with you. He still needs gun work. I just got him back from my parents in Oregon so we are working on obedience again. I will PM you my new phone number.

    I wish I still had access to the bases. The open fields and all those ponds are some of the best training areas around. I guess on a weekend you could sponsor me on.

    I don't know how late the club event will run tonight at Birchwood, but I doubt if I will be back in town before 9pm. I will be going to BHS on thursday evening around 930pm to work the pup when it might be cooler and the kids are all gone.

    You don't need a military ID to get on base. Just a recreation permit. I go on there occasionally for retriever training myself.
    Just stop by the main gate and ask for it. You do have to follow along certain guidelines. It's not much of a hassle at all.
