Recently I joined my local All breeds club because I wanted to socialize my new rescue GSD Chloe, who has only started walking on a lead a month ago. The very first night in beginners (two weeks ago) the "Instructor" started teaching all the commands at once, Chloe simply couldn't cope with all the people and dogs and just tried to pull away and I couldn't even get her to sit.
About halfway through both Chloe and I had enough and I asked someone why do they try to teach everything in one night, I was told they don't as they just show you what you will be learning. The very next week was the same bloody thing how the hell do they expect a pup let alone a rescue who a few months ago had never been in a house to learn all these commands at once.
I haven't done obedience training for many years but have never experienced this sort of crap before, is this something new or do other clubs do the same.... I would like to hear your views on this.
