|Honestly, I don't mind technical jargon as long as the person is able to explain what it means when asked. Technical terms exist for a reason - they express an idea precisely, but quickly - but like all words they're totally useless if the person you're speaking to doesn't understand them. I guess the difference is technical words used to communicate (the trainer explains what it means, makes sure you understand, then moves to just using the term) or technical words used to make you look like an expert (the trainer rattles off a bunch of terms you've never discussed before, then just tells you to do something).
For me I guess it would depend on the type of backstabbing/name-calling that was going on. I get needing to blow off steam once in a while, but if you're trashing students in public then that's not something I'd want to be around. Unless the training was somehow crucial for me/the dog, I'd get out of there.
