|Farley... this IS a bit of a looney setup. We HAVE done exercises having dogs sit or down near the course. 'Near' would be 5-10 feet and the exercise was as much for the stationary dogs as the dog running the course.
I'll also tell you, were that my GSD, _I_ would be breaking her end of the conversation... these things are not usually one-sided. Sooo... maybe take a break so the dice will give you a better set of classmates... or, maybe even better, look around for a better class???
For one of our classes, we do have mats or crates in the training space. The separation between the working dog and resting dogs is sufficient that it's a non-issue (15+ ft)... plus the dogs have worked together long enough that they are not that interested.
