I was very lucky with my trainer at Petsmart and I know it. She has 20 plus years training and she trains at a club to. All her dogs are titled and therapy dogs. I picked her and followed through with her completely with two of my dogs. She used signs, this gave us an idea about rally and she brought in agility equipment as a fun thing to do at the end of class. Her goals from the beginning are getting the dog its CGC and ready for further obedience and/or competition. She never said anything negative when I went to the GSD club and had to get a prong. She has always supported me and my dogs LOVE her. Over the summer we went to some events that she was at with her own dogs(2 Rotts and a Pug) and my GSD spotted her a mile away
So I'd have to say that my experience went way beyond just an average puppy class....she is great at what she does and I haven't been able to find anyone that I think is better then her.
