After much internet research and after making a visit to Top Knot Outfillters owned by Ed and Chrissy Rucker we made the final decision that our 10 month old black and white German Shorthair Pointer pup known as Arizona would be trained by the Rucker's.
Arizona was dropped off at Ed/Chrissy Rucker's home in Surprise, AZ for her training. Our initially decision was that Arizona was to be with the Rucker's for their 3 month training program. We later changed that and had Arizona stay for their force fetch training program. All in all Arizona was with the Rucker's for about 4 1/2 months. First let me say that it was difficult leaving our baby with anyone for training or otherwise for any length of time. We made visits to Surprise, AZ and other parts of AZ to visit our pup and to observe some of her training. We were impressed with the Rucker's from the start of the training program and throughout all of Arizona's training. The Rucker's treated our pup as if she was one of their own. She was very well tended to and excelled in her training. After a long 4 1/2 months we picked Arizona up from the Rucker's. The morning we picked her up the Rucker's had me go afield with them and worked with me so that I would be able to continue working Arizona when I returned to Henderson, NV. The Rucker's offered for Arizona to come back for a refresher or tune up type training session anytime we felt that was necessary and they offered to be available by telephone to assist with any issues we may have with Arizona. It is without reservations or hesitations that I recommend the Rucker's to anyone and everyone that wants to have a pup or dog trained. We are very happy with the way our pup was taken care of and impressed with our pup's performance at the completion of her training. Over the course of the training we have become friends with the Rucker's and consider them to be great hard working people. We hope that the friendship will last a lifetime.
