Hi, long story short I've inherited a 5 year old springer with no training at all. I have been working at the basics and she's coming along quite well. I decided to join a gundog training club and attend the obedience class they offer. First session was great and went over all the basics etc, second lesson I stood in a field and watched other peoples' dogs doing retrievals for 40 mins before doing 15 mins of heel work and sit/stays. Seemed like a bit of a waste of time and money. They offer other classes specifically for field training at different levels but this was specifically an obedience class, I was wondering if someone could tell me whether this is normal for such a class or whether I should find somewhere else?
