I was wondering if anyone can tell me if this worth it. And if you know any good puppy training class with reasonable price around NYC. If not maybe you can recommend me a good book to train your puppy.
I got a book at walmart.... the cover is pink and has a Chi sitting on a chair... It's called "Little Dogs: Training your pint-sized companion"
I like it, it specifically addresses small dogs' needs and gentle training methods.
I went to puppy kindergarten with our family boxer. It was okay, and he learned some basic commands, but was still not a "trained" dog. He still wouldn't "leave it" and he chewed stuff up even though he had toys... he was bad lol
I looked into training for my Chi... you can look on the AKC.org site... This is the link to the Canine Good Citizen Evaluators, but a lot of them offer training as well... check it out and search by your state... The ones in my area are very comparable to PetSmart's pricing... The one trainer I talked to said she cringes when she sees puppies that have had "training" at petsmart. I don't know, I have never been to their training so I couldn't tell you first hand... But that's what I have been told.... Hope it helps!
