Question...what's the difference between training your dog an being trained to handle a dog? I talked to someone at a local obedience club and she was kind of rude and didn't really explain the difference. :smcry: I guess I kind of wanted to complain because she hurt my feelings being so rude when I was just asking a question that is probably very common for them. I wanted to get Dora into their intermediate class because she already knows everything in their basic manners class but she said i I would have to pass a handling evaluation and since I don't know what that is apparently I don't think I would pass. :smcry: And I asked about the basic classes but they are full until the end of April. So partly I wanted to complain about the rude lady but I also would like to know what the difference between training and handling is.
