Koda, Maggie and Aspen graduate from the PetSmart Puppy Training course. Each dog made great progress in the 8 week class. We all had fun, the dogs learned a lot, and the humans learned even more. Bud and his family were also part of our class but they were out of town for the graduation. I have to highly recommend these classes for any puppy and more importantly, for any puppy owner!
I would recommend searching and looking into other trainers rather than Petsmart I think you will get more out of it.

We have checked out about 12 petsmarts and most of them knew very little (it's scary when Ive learned more on this site and youtube about training my pup that these "professionals" seem to know). For instance I asked it one trainer had ever worked with dogs that were to be trained as service dogs. She said that she hadnt worked with a puppy that was going to be training as a service dog but was confident that she could get us to the CGC standard since "you need it for public access" :X when I tried to nicely explain other wise she ignored me so I said no thanks. Another trainer had never worked with a handler who was in a wheel chair and said that my husband should be the primary handler ... that was a no. And another one said that there was zero difference between a handler in a chair vs one who isnt (which isnt true, some things are a little different in terms of training.... for instance heeling is scarier to a puppy who is next to rolling wheels vs feet and pulling or crossing in front of my chair could get her hurt). I do know petsmart has a satisfaction guarentee, if your not happy with the results at the end of class you can re-take it under a different trainer.
