Classes really are so helpful. I didnt realize how much until Rush and I started classes. My handling has improved so much already because I now know just a little bit more about timing and positioning and where to look. It gets complicated! If you are just learning to teach the obstacles and simple stuff, books and youtube can help (you got to get creative!). Read articles and remember asking for advice always helps. A trainer is better because they can show you the right way to train for your dog and help you get creative. You can only do SO much on your own.
