It's funny, and worth mentioning, that I've never taken a dog or puppy to a class of any kind ever! I have always been around animals of all kinds, however, and have trained horses, dogs, a few parrots, and many rats and cats LOL. And I have worked closely with many dog trainers, of various breeds and with various techniques, over the years.
But after joining this forum and hearing what people have to say, I thought it a good idea to take my puppy to a class, if for nothing else the exposure to working in proximity to other puppies or dogs. That being said, I'm not about to expose my puppy to ANY training I don't agree with. So I called several of the local training facilities, and virtually all of them said that they do not allow observers. So there's no way of telling what, or how, they train before signing up! I opted not to...
