New Year, New Tricks; Get Your Dog Schooled at PetSmart

New Year, New Tricks; Get Your Dog Schooled at PetSmart

Atlanta - If your list of resolutions includes finally getting Fluffy to stop chewing on the couch, peeing on the carpet or barking at the ceiling fan, then some training classes may be the solution.

But can you teach an old dog new tricks?

“Yes,” says Jason Smith, operations manager at PetSmart’s Midtown location. “You always can teach an older dog something new, but sometimes it takes a little longer depending on how stubborn the dog is. You may have to start at the beginning like it’s a new puppy, but yes you can train it.”

NEWNAN, Ga. – If you dream of coming home to a wet nose, wagging tail and tons of kisses (in addition to, perhaps, a half-chewed shoe or an overturned trashcan) adopt a puppy from your local Humane Society. According to the ASPCA, approximately 5 million to 7 million domesticated animals enter animal shelters nationwide, every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized. However, you can change those numbers by adopting a "companion" for yourself or for your family. Pets are an investment but, in our opinion, an investment well worth the money.

Dasher is a medium, adult Labrador Retriever mix and he’s on the Urgent Pet Adoption list. A representative at the Animal Control Center thinks he’s is about two years old. Dasher is pretty large but he won’t get any larger and she has been neutered. Dasher was found roaming outside of the shelter; shelter staff thinks he was a doorstep drop-off. Dasher can be adopted for $70.
