    Yes that happens..We have puppy classes here locally, where the puppies get basic obedience with luring on to reward system and lots of socializing (play-time)with one another and all sort of different people and even big dogs (mine)if they are happy pups. The more aggressive get more controlled socialising. We even do some tunnel and other stuff. We also talk about what you can do in the future. Like go to obedience (Kennel Club)or play groups. Self promotion is definitely not part of it and should never be. It should be fun for pups and owners. Here it is very basic

    I used Bark Busters for my Border Collie. It sure did work. She's terrified any time anyone raises their voice now or she hears the sound of a chain rattling. The stupid woman who I dealt with for an issue about a year after I first engaged them told me to stand in a room, call my dog, then throw water balloons and the chain thing at her while yelling BAH. This was supposed to stop the dog from entering that room. The dog still enters the room but won't come when called if she sees anything in my hand.

    They should be shut down IMO.

    I completely think it depends on the trainer - yes I would say be wary of a franchise. My friend had her pup trained and it worked out well for them (given she is an amazing owner I doubt they even needed training).

    Picking a trainer is a tough game!
