Lucky guy. we didnt get any caps at our graduation and weve done 4 lol.
I had two trainers but only because the trainer I wanted first doesnt take dogs under 5 months and I felt since this was my first "big dog" I didnt want to wait.
Now that I am with the trainer I wanted I am staying with her as I like her methods, clicker and positive reinforcement with some corrective and she offers advanced training.
I think you have to do what works for you, but I wouldn't keep changing methods as it may confuse the dog. So if your happy with your trainer I would definitely keep going to obedience as a review and as long as you are learning new things. for example in our 3rd obedience we review all the other lessons especially come and stay but are learning " go to your spot" and when recalled the dogs have to get their blanket and bring it to you. If your trainer doesn't offer the other classes that you are interested in, then by all means look around but try to stay with a trainer that uses the same methods you like. I unknowingly hired a trainer that uses Cesar Milan's methods and it freaked my dogs out.

Today Apollo graduated from his puppy training classes. He started at 10 weeks finished at it15 weeks. He has done great and has all his commands down...even though he still gets distracted from time to time. Next are intermediate classes, my question is it better to stick to one trainer or okay try different trainers and techniques? Here are some pictures...he did not like his cap
On our way....
No pictures please!
