I want to know what people prefer: either training at a big store chain like petco or do you prefer to go independent dog trainers?
Its where the quality is. K9 are a dog training organization with a great reputation for doing an awsome job!
I trained my dog myself. Less cost, less fuss, happy, (mostly) obedient dog

I am asking this question because I am annoyed with people bringing their dogs everywhere. There is an ethnic food fair with crowds of people, hardly any room to walk, people bring their dogs, too. I am entering a...
