Yesterday was the intro to Bug's new Basic Manners class and it was dog-less. I got a really good vibe from the instructor, Joyce. She is a GSD person and has had quite a few rescues both with and without behavioral problems. I REALLY liked how she didn't dumb down the science of training to the class - even though a lot of the students were there with the entire family in tow.
We went around and introduced ourselves. She suggested that Beyond Basics would probably be a better fit for Bug and that I should switch classes. She allowed me to stay for the rest of the intro to positive training and I left feeling like I will be working with a very competent trainer whose methods I agree with. Class starts next Tuesday at 7 pm.
