    I was wondering who has done PetsMart training and if it was worth your money to do so? B/c the 2 cities on each side of where I live have a PetsMart but one is about 10 minutes longer to get to. The shorter one is in Newnan (like yall know where that is) and the longer one is in Fayetteville, but anywho I really wanted to go to PetsMart to get some more training done w/ Dallas.
    I do believe PetsMart in Newnan is like my 2nd home LOL b/c I love going to PetsMart and everything. It smells weird sometimes but its like walking in and saying "I'm home" LOL But anyways please any questions above and advice is welcome. Thanks :D

    My cousins took their dogs to Petsmart training and loved it. They said it was wonderful. But to be honest, their dogs are not especially obedient. But that definately could be the fault of the owner and not the trainer.

    They have Petco training here, and I'm not impressed. I've seen them practicing, and while some things about it are great, others are not. For instance, one dog kept barking at the other dogs. The trainer told the owner to give the dog a treat whenever he barks, to distract and "soothe" him. So basically, reward the barking.

    It depends a lot on the training. I've been to petco classes three times because I like the trainer, but honestly most people won't learn anything during the classes, it's mostly for socialization anyway. Just in my opinion, but people who really learn things there are often the ones who believe the trainer will do everything for them anyway and end up quitting or with a dog that has no manners.
