I couldnt handle that crazy lady. I wanted to just say to her "let me put a choke around your neck because i dont like how you are behaving" :twisted:

Lincoln was fine the ride there and out of the car. All of a sudden a crazy wild aussie jumps out of his car, gets to class outside ( we were still getting the kids out). This dog ends up setting the mood. rest of the dogs are barking etc. Lincoln is fine, a stranger/ lady goes and tries to put her hand on lincolns head and he growls. We get into line to start class and a lab next to us starts to growl so Lincoln growls back (what does she expect my dog to do sit there quietly and take it )and trainer says " YOU KNOW THAT MARTINGALE IS NOT DOING ANYTHING FOR LINCOLN" OK, how come he is getting really good at walks, gets along with our friends dogs ( boxer, german shorthair) and WHY does she constantly put people down. So i had enough ( DH had enough last week LOL) as i walk off i say " you know what maybe you should take a look at all the dogs in the class and see that your method is NOT working, some of these dogs are out of control and i dont want mine by some of them". DH gets kids up and we walk away. Lincoln laid his head on DHs shoulder the ride home like "THANK YOU" Funny he made the comment that we wouldnt put our kids in school so why would we our dog) :lol: Of course, we are going to look into getting a trainer for at home which makes much more sense to us.

THANK GOD that we are not going back. Heck we all were getting edgy driving there.

Sounds like our first trainer. I stuck it out through 3 classes but when it became apparent that she had no teaching skills at all. I withdrew and sent her a letter outlining my observations and suggesting that she attend other trainers classes to learn how to teach...the note she wrote me back told me it all went right over her head.

Again I say, "not all trainers are equal....observe a trainers class before you sign up or make sure you can get your money back if you don't like the trainer's style after 1st session.
