|Nice post, I try and list as many trainers in the Northeast New England Massachusetts area|
that I live in, other than myself, as I teach basic obedience, I have a page on my web-site for trainers, and now that you have posted this, I need to add some more as I have just joined a Schutzhund club in Maine.
I try and train in as many different places and with as many different people as I can, as I strongly believe I need all the knowledge and experience of not only myself but individuals that know how a canine may react in various situations!

|Ron Stokes, Adrian, MI. Brian Harvey, Hudson, MI. I've worked with these guys quite a bit, Ron for several years and he learned under Brian Harvey who is the best and most experienced helper I've worked with so far so at this point these guys can work my dogs interchangably with no conflicts and both approach protection work and helperwork the same way I view it. Also, John Bochenek helped me with my dog right before his trial and did the trial helperwork and I would certainly go back to him in the future. I'm pretty new at Schutzhund so my opinions hardly matter but these three guys have taken me and my dogs farther than I'd imagined!|

|For someone new to the field, how does the helper/trainer system work. Are helpers paid a fee for their time, if so what might it be. Or do they work gratis for some other reward.|

Windsor Schutzhund Club - president
He taught me so much about tracking in the short time I have spoken with him. Gave me a great foundation and helpful hints/tips for my young dog which I then carried on with my new pup.
If I lived in the area, I would love to work with him.

Tails U Win, Manchester CT. They are a good source for obedience / agility / flyball / confirmation classes. All trained with a positive approach. You see many top handlers in AKC to handlers getting ready for their BH routines.
Jason Davis, Prospect, CT. Jason is a national level helper & handler in ring sport. He works with schutzhund & police dogs as well with many top handlers. He is great for developing young puppies.
Alex Jacopino, Cannan, CT. Also a national handler / helper. He is easy to work with & gets results if you have the right dog in all phases. Alex is best at working more advance national level dogs, aggressive dogs, very high drive dogs with improper training, etc..
