I noticed that there are several members in the S.F. Bay Area and I was wondering if you have any recommendations for puppy training classes. We're doing some PetSmart classes and they're OK for now, but I would like to find some other options in the area. I'm thinking about http://www.siriuspup.com/ anyone have any experience with this school? Better yet, are any bay area JL members trainers?
Hi! You can't go wrong with Sirius. They were the first people to do puppy kindergarten; I've heard nothing but good things about them.
Where are you located? In SF, the SPCA is very good (Jean Donaldson, author of "Culture Clash," is their training director). Marin SPCA, Oakland SPCA, and Berkeley Humane Society (that's where we train) are also excellent. PM me if you want more info.
Nathan I'm in Contra Costa, but I'm willing to take Lexie to the best school in the area. If Sirius has a great rep then I will probably go there since there is a class in Concord (my home town). I'll send you a PM so we can chat more.
