I love puppy kindergarten classes, but I urge people to be proactive and to take your pup out of any situations that you think may be getting her too worked up or scaring her. Some PuppyK instructors just think dogs should work it all out and I don't feel that way. I observe my dogs and if I see signs of over-excitement (like picking on a smaller dog) or fear (like trying to get away from a bigger dog that is bullying her) I just simply pick my pup up, walk away, put her down and have her stay out of the group until she calms down.

If you've got a group of pups that play really well together (some rough play is expected, of course, and that's fine) then it's really fun to sit back and just watch dog behavior. You can learn a lot from observation of groups like this!
