Started working with Russel and Jeff based on a referral from a friend after I got my Pudelpointer. She was hunting good enough at 9 months to take her out with friends and clients. Now at 2 years old she is fantastic. I could NOT have done this without all the help, tips, time, and training (for me too) that Russell and Jeff provided. This dog is my first hunting dog and despite my lack of dog training experience and knowledge and fumbling, I have a hunting dog I can be very proud of. She also became a better house dog as a result. I recommend Valhalla and their staff to everyone and anyone who asks.
