Everyone else is crated or kenneled, while I take the trainee to dog class, the driveway, uptown, whatever.
I think that training IS formal. But I also think that we have millions of training possibilities that just happen, whether other dogs are present or not. Baby gates are good too, but I learned early on that when I try to formally train in my house, the other dogs will be crying and moaning because I am paying attention to the one, and it is hard to get anything done. I have a nice field in my back yard that could be for training, but the dogs in the kennels will be barking and carrying on until it is no fun at all.
