well rico is now 6 months old so i think its prime time to take him to training. has anyone ever heard of a trainer named rudy drexler? I've been told by a lot of people that he is nationally known for training all the cop dogs in the midwest. hes pretty pricey but if he can train cop dogs im sure he can do wonders for me and rico. if anyone has heard of rudy let me know, thanks

I have never heared of this person, but I was wondering what you want Rico trained to do. I'm planning on training Chalice in search and rescue. She is still young so I'm waiting abit. She does have a special toy but yesterday Mikado pulled it's ears off.

He sounds like a pro,i googled his name and he has his own facility,sounds like a great idea to me,a canine good citizen is just what the apbt needs more of...Are you just thinking basic obediance,or possably some protection training also?

ive been talkin to some people and all of them have said that he beats his dogs into submision. the first thing they told me when i called them was that rico has to be comfortable on a choke collar. i think im gonna go with another training place.

I think you should, too.

I'm not a fan of aversive training. Dog training has changed over the years, thanks to trainers like Dunbar/Pryor/Donaldson. Postitive reinforcement training is a lot more fun for the dog, as well as the owner.

Rudy Drexler school for dogs

My name is Amber. And I have a German shepherd named cerro that I took to Rudy Drexler to be trained. The facility was very impressive and he was very friendly and explanatory. He went through and explained all of his training methods to Help me to know how to continue training and know what to do when cerro reacts to certain things. Rudy also has pictures of many of the dogs he has trained for different police departments all over the world posted on the walls of his facility. He is very professional and experienced with all breeds! I would highly recommend him for training in any of the areas he specializes in!
Thanks!
