Default Any thoughts?

Zeus and I are signed up for a puppy kindergarten class this week, I found an add in the news paper, turns out it was the kennel recommend to me by the local humane society, they offer 1, 1hr class for puppy kindergarten, then they offer beginners obedience for puppies 5 months and older. While talking to the woman on the phone I told her that I have been working on basis stuff with Zeus, sit, down, stay, I also told her I was using a treating method to train him, she told me they don't use treats for general training, they only offer them as rewards for eye contact and at the end of the training session, she said they use a positive reinforcement method and teach you to be the alpha, she said similar to Caesar Milan. I've heard mixed reviews about this sort of training and wanted to get some feedback from other, more experienced, GSD owners, this is the only place anywhere near me that I have found offering puppy kindergarten and obedience training, so any thoughts or suggestions?
