Hey! We are currently in our 4th week through Petsmart puppy training and we LOVE IT!!! I rescued my 4 mo old chi and in 4 weeks he can sit, lay, stay, come when called, and leave things alone when I tell him! Plus, he is no longer shy! He loves when they puppies get play time in class! Totally worth it
We did puppy and intermediate training classes with our pup at PetSmart. It was a great way to teach him, but he also got used to interacting with other dogs in a controlled environment. I would definitely recommend it. It’s fun too! They teach using games and activities so the dogs are focused and having fun.
