Great cause, lets give those shock collars the boot. If Petsmart would do it, more follow (hey, petsmart is that not good PR?)
I love the never shock a puppy campaign and i’m really hopeful the petsmart campaign is successful! The over-the-counter shock collars really scare me (not that them in the hands of a “professional” is much better)… Thanks for sharing!
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has proved these methods DO cause more behavior problems to occur rather than reduce them, he has gotten angry, and withdrawn,eventually ending up stabbing me right in the middle of the back.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.

honestly, you need to let all of them battle it out. I had aggressive felines, I was afraid they were going in order to kill one another, I didnt want possibly one to get hurt etc, My hubby let them both go loose in the particular house, they scrapped a couple of instances, then they got over it. And We mean they were AGGRESSIVE. Now they complete each other fine, I mean they do not lay down and snuggle together but these people co exist fine. Let em go, watch over it, gently tap one when they start to howl, growl or hiss and grumble. Youll be fine, theyll be fine. The likely to take some time. The greatest thing you can do before you allow them go, is go to a petsmart or petco and get the claw addresses so they really cant do any harm to one another. They are just small plastic covers that slip over the fingernails. And I dont believe they sell surprise collars for cats because of the distinction in size, nerves etc. Dogs are provided shock collars because dogs also have the way better memory than cats. Cats are usually not like dogs by any means therefore you can shock all of them time long and its not going to perform a damn little bit of good, plus its going to hurt and piss away from a cat alot more than a canine. Not to mention, its pretty inhumane to get a cat anyways. Good luck and wish everything works out with you and the particular cats: ) Justin’s dog Desmond — pictured here –owed him $6 after he went a little wild during a Petsmart grooming session, spurring the staff to sic a difficult dog fee on him. To Justin, the charge gave him a shock collar-level jolt.
