Why would any of you continue to work for Petsmart at all? Especially anyone being a CPDT-KA.
Good lord, I can see using petsmart to get the hours needed to take the exam and all, but after getting the certification, get the heck out of there and get a REAL job. There are plenty of places, Much, much, more reputable and moral, and ethical than PetDumb.
Surely if you are a CPDT, you know how the "Professionals" speak of petsmart? What kind of a hypocritical corporation preaches of teaching "positive" reinforcement, then has trainers praising "The Dog Whisperer" and Cesar Millan and all of his crap?
The "Other" trainer I worked with boasted of having met the little turd on a few occasions, and has an 8"x10" framed color photo of himself and that idiot standing together.
He is so dang proud of this. And when I have pointed out, and/or sent links to videos/articles showing clear evidence of this idiot, having absolutely NO behavior at all, and not even having graduated from high school, using very harmful, painful,often even torture techniques,and in one case, nearly killing one dog, on video, and veterinarians speaking on all the research which has proved these methods DO cause more behavior problems to occur rather than reduce them, he has gotten angry, and withdrawn,eventually ending up stabbing me right in the middle of the back.
This guy is a joke. The whole store is a joke. The company is a joke.
Oh, and the entire 'shock collar' thing? What the heck is that all about?
Why even bother having dog training classes? Just open up the glass doors wide, and let them grab. They don't care who they sell those things to and they don't even know anything about how or why they DON'T work, or the dangerous effects they can have and potential for abuse.
In the area I am from,I know there are tons of rednecks, trying to catch the dog,early friday morning,to get ready for a fun filled Saturday night on the porch with and buddies.
