    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 smile

      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!

      Look for videos by Michael Ellis watch and then train your own dog.  Marker training is the best form of training yet.

      For the very basic things of training, I have gone to PetsMart.  I like their methods (clicker and treat), and I managed to get private classes with the woman in charge of area training.

      Some of the most vexing behavioral problems I have solved myself.  It takes a lot of experimentation and intuition, and nothing any trainer has ever told me worked.  I had to figure it out for myself, and I used a combination of methods gleaned from my research.

      I've got a big challenge right now with my miniature schnauzer.  I often ask myself "Why do I have a terrier?"
