Puppy Training Franchises

Most of the dog training facilities in our area seem to be franchise businesses. Two questions please, would appreciate some advice:

What experience have you had with Leash Free Living, Positively Dogs, Paws and Possibilities, Bark Busters, Off Leash K9 Training, or any other trainers (Maryland)?

What is a good combination of in-home personal training sessions and/or at-facility personal training sessions and/or puppy classes?

Thanks!

I don't know about most of those but I do know Off Leash K9 Training uses shock collars and I would never want that done to my dog. The drawback to any of the send your dog off to be trained schools is you miss the opportunity to bond through training. Rukie and I had so much fun together at all of his classes and he learned to look to me for direction, support, encouragement, and praise.

Thanks--totally agree- We will definitely avoid harsh methods and would not send puppy off to be trained. I need the training as much as he/she does, if not more lol.
