I have not read all the propaganda. One thing that makes me wonder though is working through a regular crowd, like, having the class meet at Geneva On The Lake and working through the crowd there.
So what happens when one of the dogs fails and scares or nips some crowd-member? Is the evaluator then liable to being sued?
Our advanced class did actually meet at an outdoor restaurant down there with our dogs. It wasn't my thing. I prefer to eat without having to be hyper-vigilent about my dog the entire time. But whatever.
Another $20 for the AKC, and another certificate or couple of letters after the dogs name.
