There are a number of qualified PL trainers in the US. The supply is low in comparison to traditonal Lab trainers so be prepared to travel a bit.
Some critical points to consider:
1) Is your dog tuff enuf to take collar training? (Many PLs are soft and react negatively to collars, as do many pointers/setters)
2) Does the trainer breed also?? (A conflict of interest for trainers)
3) Is the trainer TRAIL training or FAMILY-HUNTER training?
