It seems excessive but if he has stitches, maybe not. You can go to class the first night without him, watch carefully and try to keep up by working him a little at home. Mine had major surgery last summer and I had to keep him quiet for 6 weeks. No running, no stairs. I got a soft Comfy Cone. I worked with him on scent training, I hid things in boxes (1 with an object, the rest empty) and he had to alert me to the box with the scent. I got Kongs and filled with some of his food.
