Hello Doberman family I am not posting much here or to the growingupdoberman blog cause I am having a lot of hand, neck and shoulder pain off and on.  So I am schedule to see a Chiropractor next week.

In the mean time I know of a lady that trains dogs but she keeps them at her house for 30 days so much money per day. You can come see them once a week till trained. I am seriously considering it due to the pains I am having. I have stopped all leash train and she is getting rebellious and ignoring me. Can we say Brat? Yep BRAT'itis is setting in and making mama very po'ed at the princes!!! Which the princes relents only cause mama is mad now and no fun!

Anyways It will cost a good bit, but worth it if she is good! I have references to call and a groomer friend recommended her to me and my vet knows of her too.

What do you all think??? While she is gone I can heal and get some rest ahahhaha just joking, but I do need to rest this shoulder. I'll see what the Chiropractor Dr says!

 

But what do you all think about this away from home training???

 

Izzy and I have company number 2 grand Chloe

I can understand that you have a pain problem.  I do, too - severely bad knee pain (thanks mom).  However, I do not believe in sending away a dog for training and have read far too many reports of people spending a fortune to do so, the dog comes home and there's no improvement.  This is because you have to learn how to do the training so that the dog listens to you and respects you. 

I know pain.  There are some nights I'm crying on the drive home from agility class or obedience class - it's that bad.  I'm taking an incredibly stupid amount of pain killers to get through classes, but I think it's that important that I do it.  In the end, the dog has to listen to and respect me, not some trainer across town - you know what I mean?
