Excited and playful is normal behavior; lunging and aggression towards others is better worked on with a private training session before enrolling in a group class. Excessive barking that cannot be curbed by the instructor may result in dismissal from class with a refund and referral for private training. If you have questions as to whether your dog would be benefit from this class, we'd be happy to discuss.
