Down To Earth School Reviews
I recently met a group of students from DTE at a public park here in Silver City. They were accompanied by an adult teacher. I went to the park to conduct a private lesson in dog obedience to one of my students. I received permission from the Town of Silver City to conduct my lessons. The dogs are always on leash. I set up in a corner of the park well away from the DTE students. Soon they were running through my equipment, and jumping over my blanket where my student and I were sitting with her tiny (maltese) dog. The dog barked at the students. When I asked the students to please go back to where the rest of the students were, the adult teacher came over to me and told me that the park was for children, not adults like me and my student and her dog. He was antagonistic and hateful.
