Our Snoopy has just been fixed and is 6 months old. I want to do training and was wondering what suggestions you guys might have. I am mainly looking at doing training at PetSmart. Has anyone done the training there? Did you like it? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

We did the Puppy class at Petsmart when Bodie was 8 weeks old. It gave us a great head-start. At 9 months, we're now taking the intermediate class at Petsmart too. Bodie needed more time to mature and work before we felt he was ready for the next class.

I know some people are training snobs and don't think very highly of the Petsmart training. I think a lot of it has to do with the trainer you get. We're using the same guy for the second class and he's pretty good.

I did the Petco training and I loved it. I did the Puppy class with Colby and the Intermediate class. And in the next few weeks he'll get his AKC Good Citizen certification from them and then we are going to go through their therapy dog class.

That's our plan with Bodie too. My wife is a Speech Therapist and we're going to eventually train Bodie to be a therapy dog.
