Good thing I don't remember the last time I bought anything there. Flash and I were there working on obedience with distraction. He **** well knows what sit and platz means, no excuse for him to not do them. He was a little too into another dog when I told him platz so he ignored me. I corrected him with the fursaver and told him platz again. He ignored again, I corrected him harder. The whole time I'm very calm and matter of fact, I'm not losing my temper at all. About that time the manager comes running up with a very disturbed look on his face, "Ma'am, ma'am! You can't be choking your dog in this store, we are positive training only and I don't know what technique you are using but that just won't work here." I was floored. I pulled out the hot dog I was using as a reward, he had gotten way more hot dog than corrections up to that point, but apparently I was choking the life out of him and I'm an evil wench. I said wow and just walked off towards the door. I couldn't hold myself as I walked out and said a four letter word. Oh well. I wanted to tear into the guy. Petsmart workers are the last people I'd take dog advice from.
My DH got a kick out of the story, though. I think anyone who has seen me with Flash will get a kick out of this story.Now I'm just mad that we have to find somewhere else to do obedience around dogs.
