i like scaring them, i don't like when they correct their dogs for being distracted.
I say this with all due respect--you might want to check your attitude. No wonder they are getting snarky, if you are deliberately trying to scare and distract their dogs. The club is there for everyone, not just you.
I agree that dogs need to be proofed under distraction, but if they are not in the proofing stage yet, you are probably making it very difficult for them. I would be upset if I was working with a young, underconfident, reactive dog and I had you over there doing everything you can to make it worse.
The people who are there, I assume, have paid good money to train at the club and they deserve to get their money's worth, without some guy trying to make their dogs freak out and gloating when they do.
If you don't like it when they correct their dogs for being distracted, why are you deliberately trying to distract them? That only means MORE corrections for the poor dogs!
I know you said this is the only place you can train, but this club is not a good match for what you want to do. I used to drive 90 minutes each way to the SchH club twice a week. Do you have a SchH club within driving range? I realize not everyone has the time to drive for several hours, but it's something you might consider.
Is there any way you can train at a time when the others aren't doing their AKC obedience work?
