Turner - Gone Too- Soon

Hi I'm Turner- Wanna Smell My- Butt?

I have a friend in NJ, Burlington County with a 16 week old lab mix. She wants to get him into a training facility that offers puppy agility. She's contact 2 trainers in her area and they both use shock collars. She refuses to use a shock collar and is looking for a trainer that does positive reinforcement training. If anyone knows of a trainer in this area please let me know so I can pass it on to her. I hate to see her give up on training... Thanks!flowers

This trainer may or may not do agility training but she could give them a great foundation training that they will use in agility when the puppy is older.

OR she could probably direct your friend to a positive puppy agility class.
