Saving up for GSD trainer, in meantime is a manners class a good idea or bad?
So we have decided on a trainer to go to but they are a couple hours away and we need to save up $ in the meantime for it. So my question is, is it worth putting him in a local manners class run by our vet tech? Or is there a possibility she will train the wrong way and it'll be even harder when we go to the experienced trainer? We mainly wanted him to go to be more socialized with other dogs as well as just covering a few more of the basics and working on what we already know. It's a 6 week course for only $100 (because she's our vet) so it's not to expensive. We figured we would do this class and hopefully a few weeks after the end of the sessions we would have enough saved for the professional trainer.
Thanks for any and all input :-)
