Dog Trainer Recommendations - H'Town

Looking for suggestions for getting dogs trained in the H'Town area. I know PetSmart does training, but I'm not sure as to the quality you'd get there.

HPD Money Grab

I was just wondering how many people were caught in the Police Department's most recent Safety Initiative (aka money grab)? Yesterday afternoon, they had of their officer's sitting on something in the back of a pick up parked on High St. wearing shorts and a t-shirt. This way he could look into cars as they were driving towards Main Street. He would radio ahead to let the uniformed officers waiting at the municipal parking lot know who did not have their seatbelt on or had their phone in their hands.
