Perhaps the time has come where you are absolutely sure there is no way to make your puppy or dog behave. You do not want to abuse your beloved animal but he or she is just not listening to what you are saying and it’s quite embarrassing, especially around other people. Before you decide to call it quits with your puppy, letting him have free reign over your home or having to surrender him or her to a new home, back to the adoption agency or pound there is one last alternative to look into.
PetSmart, located on Airport Blvd., offers training classes for all puppies or dogs. You can sign your puppy or dog up for classes with other dogs of the same age group so they can learn and be more socialized, or you can work a schedule out with a trainer for one on one training.
The classes are for one hour, once a week for six weeks, and there are two lessons for each day. If you feel as though your pet is not catching on as fast as you would hope, keep practicing and also speak with the trainer to see about getting extra days aside with the trainer.
Be sure to remember that if you have a yorkie-poo or any small dog that they will be the center of attention and everyone will just want to hold and pet and love your animal, but remember to get your puppy to do these tricks and focus on getting them down.
Among the training class on a Saturday, there is also the pet adoption going on at the same time. It can get pretty loud and distracting to have class. When walking around the store to practice the training tips, it would be better if you wouldn’t bring your puppy to the animals wishing to be adopted. A few can get a little hostile at the other dogs roaming around. The staff would also appreciate if the puppies were not brought to the small animal section, as it scares the little animals.
The class is fun and not only does will it help your puppy be more trained but you will be more trained to your puppy as well. It’s a great way to socialize and be productive at the same time. Some of criteria of the class includes how to potty train, make your puppy come when called, sit, lay down, take it and leave it.
