I agree the woman probably meant you will LEARN more volunteering at a shelter/rescue vs their club.
Most breed specific clubs have owners that have that specific breed, and frankly, alot of them don't "do" anything. They are just a club, maybe put on a match/show, but aren't really about learning how to "train" dogs.
Your best bet is to find a trainer who will mentor you, allow you to observe classes that they teach.
