Haven't taken Jasmine for any sort of training yet, and I would really like to. Unfortunately, the closest classes I have found are about an hours drive away from me. I live in a relatively small town. Both my granddaughter and I have tried doing some training with her at home - the sit - stay - come - leave it, etc. Basic commands, but we haven't made a lot of progress. Like you, I am mostly concerned with the obedience as a safety precaution. I just keep checking around here occasionally hoping to find a good trainer. I would probably opt for the classes, just because of the socialization aspect if I find some classes closer by me.
