I would not attempt it in this manner! The dog is certain to fail!

Why not train the dog through positive inducive measures to sit and stay. Why not then have people begin to approach in a neutral manner, and reward the dog for success. And then why not build on the success with gradual increases in the excitement level of the greeting process, rewarding the dog for success along the way?

I really do not understand what the instructor is thinking in this situation. Not at all.
That is what I am thinking too.

To the OP, keep in mind that your pup/dog could shift and change for each class (and during each class), unitl the behaviours START to become consistant. (meaning they will progress and regress between each class/week). That all depends on the dog, your experience and how much you invest in your homework.
Good luck.
