They switched the night of Advanced obedience and my normal instructor (the obedience Nazi ) can't teach that night. The class is at 6:30 which is almost impossibLe for me to get there on time, and only lasts an hour. It is a class for "novice obedience", those dogs coming out of basic who want to advance. So Emilu is more advanced than the other dogs. (except for her attention - some of those dogs had beautiful attention). But I learned alot from just having a different instructor. You learn something new from everybody. And the class atmosphere was much calmer. I left refreshed and happy - not exhausted and frustrated. And the last thing that instructor said to me was "would you be terribly insulted if I told you that your dog was very overweight?" And I said - "no - the first time I ever entered this building I got a 10 minute lecture on how overweight my dog was" I am still planning on training with my old instructor too - every other Monday we have rented the building for "practice" with my original advanced class.
Well, good! It is so true about learning something different from every instructor. I've had a different one for each class we've taken, and I love that about it. Even the instructor I could not stand (you probably remember her) had one good tip that I took away and still use.
It IS impossible to make it to a class at 6:30! I can barely do 7:00. :

For my CD class one of my other instructors and I team teach it cause we each bring something different to the class. We each view things just a little different. It really is good!

I enjoy having different instructors too. Right now, I am taking 5 classes between Kodi and Hoss (he gets class three nights a week!). Each has a different instructor, and I value the information from each. (even if a bit frustrating some nights! )
