Dog training at PetSmart includes classes for all levels and ages
We took our own 6 month old puppy, a chow/Lab mix to our local PetSmart dog obedience training class and put them to the test
Its true that you will recieve very little training regarding the dogs. Its about proceedures and selling classes. Petsmart will not give you any continueing . Unless it is regarding selling.
Thanks everyone - I'll ask about trainer's back ground - at Petsmart they had a print up with info about the trainer for the puppy class, and I think the max was 6 dogs.
A fun day at the Petsmart Dog Training Class
Indoor Activities for Dogs: Training and Play | PetSmart
A fun day at the Petsmart Dog Training Class. Second week of class on July 12th, 2010 for 6PM in West Mifflin. The same with the other videos of this subject, unless stated otherwise. If you are from the class watching these to make them 43 views and under, don't be afraid to let me know how you think of them at the class. I have been wanting to ask if anyone viewed them but thought it would be mentioned at the class, but no. HEHE.
REMINDER: THIS VIDEO AND THE OTHER VIDEOS OF OR NEAR THE SAME CONTENT WAS TAKING DURING A BREAK FROM THE LESSONS OR BEFORE THEIR LESSONS BEGIN (THEIR ARRIVAL), THAT IS WHY THERE IS NO TRAINING BEING TAUGHT IN THIS VIDEO. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT.According to the Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI), classroom and therapy pets can motivate children to improve their reading performance. Now, pets and their pet parents can prepare for Therapy Dog evaluation through PetSmart’s newly offered six-week Dog Therapy Training Course – a first for a national pet retailer to offer this unique pet training program. Once certified, the pet parents and their dogs can give back to the community through the emotional support of a Therapy Dog at schools, libraries, hospitals and senior living facilities, among others.

We all had fun, the dogs learned a lot, and the humans learned even more. Bud and his family were also part of our class but they were out of town for the graduation. I have to highly recommend these classes for any puppy and more importantly, for any puppy owner!All PetSmart will care about is selling and making them money. Don't know how much experience you have with training dogs, but I know it is not enough training that they give you. I know, because I was the Area Trainer and trained the trainers. You will be doing work out of a work book, reading, taking a test. You will be observing the area trainer, then help her in classes. Then you will be doing some of her classes to get you ready to do your own classes. So that is only 2 weeks. You will be working out of a curiculum book, and you will be expected to do it week by week. If there is a method that you want to do in class, you are not allowed, period! I have alot of training behind me and I keep updated on all of the current training methods. PetSmart is way too frustrating for me, so I left (fired) for letting someone use my 30% off coupon But I am so glad I am not longer there. The curiculum came from some outstanding trainers, BUT when they got it done, PetSmart took most of it OUT. I have my own in-home training and its wonderful. I can actually teach my cliets more effectively. Some of my own students at the store is so pissed, they found me in the phone book, they no longer will shop in the store and have hired me to come to their house.
