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 trained my doog by myself to. I taught him verbal and han commands.
Like teaching my dogs myself. You can really get them to do anything, it just takes consistency and practice.
I have always trained my own dogs and been very good at it! All the dogs I've owned could do any trick, stay on command, sit, fetch, give their paw, retrieve, and so many other things! It's all in knowing a few basic steps and anyone can do it! Of course, you have to have patience and love for the animal!!!
It's quite easy actually!

Are some dogs over goofy no matter how much training?We have a dog who has been goofy since we got him. We expected some behavior issues due to him being cocker mixed with husky but he is still acting like a 6 month old puppy at 2 1/2 years. He has been through 3 training classes. Do some dogs just...

Why doesn't my dog ever buy me treats?I buy him treats all the time and take him for walks and play fetch with him and stuff. But he never buys me any treats. How do I get him to do this?While we're at it, I'd also like him to start taking himself for walks and picking up his own poop.
