Basic obedience class?
I am interested in taking my adopted GSD Reagan to some training classes to help us bond more and to help her get positive exposure to other dogs. She's 1.5 years old and I adopted her in May. She knows sit, down, stay, come, and walks well on a leash. However, I'm not sure how she is around other dogs she doesn't know. She sometimes barks at dogs that startle her while I'm taking her out to the bathroom or taking her for a walk, but she isn't aggressive. She plays very well with my other two dogs, a male and a female, so I assume she would be ok with other dogs but may bark initially. I would like for her to learn some new commands in the class, but I don't know that I should sign her up for a more advanced class if she may bark/be disruptive to the other dogs in the class. So should I just start with a beginner class even though she knows the basic commands? Any advice would be great!
