SMS is a franchise - people buy into it, and are under quota to make a certain amount per month. And as Volcano mentioned, you have to use the SMS method, which is strictly e-collar training.
You don't have to have credentials to be a dog trainer, just need the money to buy into the franchise, and off you go!

They are strictly ecollar training, and they are some kinda racket. When I saw a sms trainer he misled me that they had a group puppy class to get me to come to his house. Then he put an ecollar on my 13 week old puppy. Then he showed me the training packages and they were in the thousands of dollars, but you get a discount if you sign up on the spot- thats a scam to me. Oh also their website is so crappy and misleading that I thought I was going to see the guy in the video- I saw one of his franchisees.
Thats like me putting up a website for me training and then I put Micheal Ellis vids on there because I watched his vids.

Sit Mean Sit Dog Training?? (especially the Columbus Ohio one)
Anyone have experience with the SMS dog training?
I came across it and it looked like a good place for puppy obedience (well... when I get a puppy that is). I took my current dog to the National K9 Learning Center when he was a puppy. It was one of those take them, leave them for a week and pick them up trained.. I was super happy with them and was where I planned on taking my next puppy but this SMS caught my eye.
