I followed the puppy class with my working line cocker spaniel, and I would definitely recommend it to owners of active breeds.
They carefully adjust to the needs of each dog/handler combination. The instructors are highly educated, professional and creative. You get valuable feedback on how you execute the exercisees, and there are coaches at the ready during the group lessons, for when you need help.
You won’t learn the rote commands: you’ll learn the skills you need to navigate daily life instead.
