    my dog got jumped on my six pug dogs at obedience class the pugs only wanted to play with him but he didnt like it. so now everytime a dog goes near him he goes for them i had to buy a muzzle to be on the safe side at class. this only happens at dog class he fine around other dogs any where else. i would be grateful for any advice yous have to stop him going for dogs at the class

    First off, does the instructor know that the people with the pugs can't control their dogs? Obedience class is NOT the place for dogs to play with each other. Its where they should 'play' with you. (same goes for agility classes)

    Personally from the little bit I glean from your post I would ditch this class. A muzzle is going to make it hard to reward your dog, and make your dog feel that doing obedience is punishing. I would find a class that CAN help you. This is a pretty easy thing to work on, but you need an instructor who is interested in helping you. (I said easy to work on, didn't say easy to fix)
