Default Choosing a puppy class trainer (be wary of shutzhund trainers?)

Ok guys. I am moving to boston and for those who don't know already am bringing home an aussie puppy

Anywho, I am looking for a puppy class. I have a few choices in Boston (which is very pet friendly) and am doing my research and such on different trainers/classes in the area

Well I happened upon a well recommended trainer/classes about 30 minutes away from my future apartment and started my research..

The website of the training center isn't working at the moment.. but from what I've found online about the trainer he seems to be a highly recommended trainer (especially in doberman/shutzhund circles) and when I mentioned this someone told me I should be wary because even if I am only taking basic puppy classes/obedience courses.. this kind of trainer (as in who does PP and those kinds of training) might not be OK with clicker training and positive only based methods.

Any ideas/input?

I gave them a call and left a message and hope to speak with the trainer more..

I am a little saddened by the possibility of this not working because the trainer seems highly recommended and it's one of the only dog training places around that features MORE (higher level obedience) than just basic puppy class+basic obedience and manners.

So what has been your experience with this kind of thing?

Disclaimer: I work for Trupanion and love it/our policy! But I do not speak for the company or as the company.
