Nico is just finishing up a class at PetsMart. We signed him up at PetsMart because it was convenient and they had a class starting right when we wanted to start and at a time that worked. The instructor is quite good and keeps good control of the class. There are generally 7 puppies in our class. I don't think it's the best training venue, but I think it's fine for socialization and for teaching the HUMANS the basics of what we need to know to work with him at home. After 7 weeks of class, Nico does sit, down, sit stay, down stay, come, down from standing and leave it fairly reliably if there aren't a ton of distractions. He's also pretty good on a loose leash. He's starting another class at a dog training club and will continue his training there instead of PetsMart, but I have no complaints about his puppy kindergarten class at PetsMart.
