Default Trainer Recommendations- PA?

Can anyone recommend a trainer for flushing dogs in PA, NJ, NY, or DE? Would like to keep it within 300 miles of Philadelphia, if possible. Thanks

Default Trainer Option

My son used Karen at Pheasant Valley Farm in Robesonia, PA. 610-693-9836. He has a lab/beagle mix and has become a fantastic flusher and retriever. Hope this helps.

Try Ray Wunderlich at Catskill Kennel. He is a first rate trainer of Springers. He is a bit less than 200 miles away from Philadelphia. He specializes in springers. One of his dogs, Upland's TNT (Boom) finished 3rd in the national open trial in 2012 and completed the last round this year but did not place. One of Boom's offspring is about 2 feet away from where I am sitting.

I don't know anyone in your area. If you ever need a dog trained in Colorado I know the best guy. He trains many of the world champion field trial dogs and has trained dogs for my family that are world class hunting dogs that would out retrieve everyone's dogs I've hunted with. We actually have a little black lab in training right now. My yellow lab passed away back in November, she was 11 and until she got cancer that last year, she would run all day and was an amazing hunting dog. We also have a 2yr old english setter that is amazing too. If anyone needs a good dog trainer in Colorado I can point you in the right direction. Sorry I don't know any good dog trainers in your area and that I went off on a tangent.

Karen up at Pheasant Valley farms is great to work with, you can also try Steve DelRossi at Quail Hollow Kennels down in Salem New Jersey.

I wound up going with Karen & Mark at Pheasant Valley. One session so far, learned a lot, and the dog is really coming into her own. Less than an hour drive from my home. Thanks to all who responded!
