I toko my puppy in for her beginner training class last night. The trainer put a choke chain on one of the puppies and she did not use the treat method to teach our puppies to sit. The method taught was to yank up on the leash real hard and push their butt down. When one of the puppies let out a cry, she said, "Do not let them fool you, you are not hurting them." Needless to say, we will not be returning. No 5 month old puppy needs to be yanked around like that.
I will have to give it to the store though, they did not hesitate to refund my money and were really apologetic. I was told the training department manager would be calling me today to talk things over with me.
