Well it might be good -but the pup needs to be socialised and trained with other pups 🙂
Quite a few on the more forward thinking trainers are now acknowledging that if only 20% of pups cope in a class training situation that we could be doing a lot better and on line courses seem to be one option that is gaining momentum.
To that I could comment -none of my dogs ever "learned" anything from puppy-class -i always taught them myself. BUT... in my opinion the pups need to go in order to meet and socialise with other pups and people. And I certainly agree, that the trainer has a great responsibility so the pups will no get bad experiences 🙂

We’re pleased that 10 Downing Street & Theresa May have announced legislation and proposals to help improve animal welfare in 2018; these include tougher prison sentences for animal cruelty and new dog breeding regulations to help ensure puppy buyers have a better chance of avoiding irresponsible breeders, puppy dealers and the illegal trade in puppies from outside of the UK, and a better chance of getting a happy and healthy puppy from a responsible breeder.

If you have a dog who takes treats hard or gets over-aroused during training this tutorial is for you! This is one of my secrets to training high drive dogs or easily frustrated dogs to work for duration without being overly stressed or aroused or frustrated: Train your Reinforcement Deliveries as behaviors FIRST before starting your training! If you are seeing over-arousal or frustration during the reinforcement process, it can muddy the behavior you are training, and cause the dog to show signs of stress and frustration during the behavior you are asking for, for example: whining, barking, panting excessively, showing their teeth, growling, acting goofy or randomly offering behaviors. The video is 12 minutes because it goes over 3 Games and goes over everything you will need to help your dog succeed! This was one of the keys to my success with teaching Wish, my easily aroused and easily frustrated Border Collie to work for long duration without frustration or over-arousal.
