Anyone know a good dog trainer or training facility in the Branson/Springfield general area?

Our shelter dog, who will be 1 year old on Valentines day went to Pet Smart beginner training, but I find it to be a bit too slow for my needs. We want to continue her training in a more quickly paced manner. The jumping up on counters, bodies, etc. and gnawing (on hands, feet, clothes, blankets, etc.) needs to stop ASAP.

Any one use anyone or anyplace they can recommend?

Dog Spot Training - Home (http://www.spotdogtraining.com/site/ - broken link)

Lisa is outstanding to work with! One of my Newfoundlands and I have been through her beginning, intermediate and advanced obedience courses as well as her trick class. She hosts classes in Springfield and Ozark. Good luck!

I'll have to join everyone for coffee one of these days.

If you talk to Lisa, tell her that Mike, Summer and Bailey said hello.

Glad 8 Snake had a personal reference. I have seen this dog training facility but have never checked it out. I guess this is kinda dumb, but I dont even know the name. It is located at the end of Chestnut Expressway and Hwy 125. Take 65 and go East on Chestnut, once you get to the end make a left on 125 and its on your left hand side. I will check it out tomorrow and get you the name.

Thanks G4. Sounds like the Springfield Dog Training Club. I've talked to them and to Snake8's recommendation which I've already taken advantage of...or at least while in March when the next family dog class begins in Ozark.

I agree with mrschilicook, this sounds like the Springfield Dog Training Club. My wife and I are members of Pet Therapy of the Ozarks along with our two Newfoundlands. We've participated in some Pet Therapy evaluation tests at the center, but haven't taken any obedience or training classes there.

Mrschilicook: I'm glad that you're scheduled for Lisa's class. I'll look forward to hearing about your experiences. Have fun!
