Harley is 18 weeks now and I'm thinking about taking him to dog obedience classes. I found a place that uses positive reinforcement techniques only and they have a class starting 2-15. The classes are 90 minutes each and it is once a week for 6 weeks. The price is $239.00 OUCH! I've never had a dog before so I really don't know how to train one. Harley is a good dog, I've taught him to sit already, he comes 98% of the time when I call him and he is fully paper trained. I take him to work everyday so I need him to mind me, which he does pretty well now but I don't know if as he gets older if he will start to get a mind of his own kind of thing? How important and how useful are these classes? Its a lot of money but I can pay it and still pay my bills without too much of an issue. I guess I'm just looking for peoples opinions who have taken there dogs to these classes before and was it worth it?
