Petsmart "Trainer" gives me advice..vent
So, I took Tim for our weekly shopping at Petsmart and he was being his usual perfect self. No pulling, minding his own, being sweet.
The PetsMart trainer happens to be between classess..and I have watched a few! He just yells at the dogs...its pure chaos! Nice gentleman, but totally clueless!
Anyway, he stops to say "hi" and notes that Tim has on a prong. Well, He says no way should this dog be on a prong. He is too well behaved. I mean, he didnt even bat an eye when the other dogs were lunging at him. He says he should be only on a nylon flat collar.
I thanked him for his compliment and told him the reason he is so well-behaved is that I have worked with him and the prong keeps him safe from the crazy dogs that frequent Pets Mart. He , of course, insisted I should never use a prong and that it is a bad way to train.
I had to excuse myself and keep shopping! Whatever!!
