I took Murphy to a trainer . A very small group it was just easy-peasy stuff, general follow me, walk nicley stuff, but there was a little assault course, anything dog didn't like to do that was fine but we were told let tgem sniff , put couple of treats on it wait until the dog choses to do it ..the woman trainer was very relaxed.

One lady had taken previous dogs to a training school in the area that I know well , when we walk our dogs nearby we often hear fireworks dustbin lids banging, and lots of shouting coming from there ..They are a macho group who believe in tough dogs and tough love and the alpha dominance theory.
She didn't realise this when she tried to take her old dog there but every time they got out of the car the dog would literally tremble and have explosive diarrhoea.

The thing is that school is popular and it is is well-established proving that some dogs will do well there, other dogs won't ...not every school is the same, not every training method is the same, and not every dog is the same, it sounds as if the training school you're at is not the one for you and your dog I would suggest cutting your losses moving on and finding somewhere more suited to you.
