Hi everybody, I am new to this Forum and my apologies if this has been gone over before, I had a look but couldn't see much in the way of recommendations.
I am looking for a recommendation to a good puppy school to attend with our beautiful Dalmatian puppy located near Brisbane (south preferred) or Ipswich.
This is my first dog, having said that I own three horses and compete in eventing. I am experienced in training young horses, handling yearlings and stallions etc. I do not think it is a fair comparison especially being that horses are animals of flight, although I believe my equine foundations assure me that I will have the ability to own and train a dog especially one such as a Dalmatian.
Anyhow hence why I am wanting to join a good puppy school, I want assure he is properly socialised and that my training techniques are suitable and correct for him.
There seem to be plenty out there, but I know a bad trainer can be the most harmful thing in the world.
Can anyone recommend a good trainer and puppy school? Also a good vet? We have just moved here from the far north, and of course will need a good vet for the dog and horses alike.
Thank you everybody look forward to hopefully finding a great place.
