Belle is on the waiting list to join training classes where I took Reuben. I have been doing some work with her at home as she has not really had any training and she is doing OK so far, she loves food so that helps.

I could do it all at home but I want the socialisation of classes. Once she reaches advanced I will probably take Reuben back so they can go together

If I get another dog one day or a pup I'll shall not be going to training classes again. Where I went they never let you do the socialisation with other dogs. So just train my dog on what ive learned from them. I think i'm going to help my sister out with Fifi as my Brother in law said to my sister, your sister did do all the classes for bubbles. So I do no the important dog commands.

If she can benefit from your knowledge that's great. At our classes they have five to ten minutes play time before class

Same as Net here, they wouldn't even let us stand together to talk and dogs sniff. I think it made the dogs more tense.

I went to two and neither of them seemed bothered on what was going on or progress so I gave up. I tried one indoor and one outdoor.

However if you can get socialisation out of it that will be great

I choose the outdoor group which met on the local meadows , it was great fun for the dogs , there a really local one in the scout hut but I really don't know how they do it inside & so close together , alfie would have hated that

We never socialised either but there is no tension in the room so no trouble. We still take Ruby and Elsdon to advanced training and they love it. At our Christmas party there were at least 20 dogs in a local village hall and no trouble whatsoever :-)

I think the socialisation aspect is far more important than the sit, down, wait aspect of a class. I'd much prefer a calm confident dog with only a couple of commands (sit and recall preferably) than a dog with 50 commands and no social skills. But it isn't easy finding a class where there is good supervision for socialisation. I have suggested to a few clients that if they go to a training only class that they meet up before or afterwards (I'd prefer afterwards as the pups should be more tired/calmer) and go for a group walk letting the dogs sniff and meet each other.
Another good idea is to sign up for more than one class so pups get the chance to meet even more dogs and different styles of learning.
