|I would continue taking classes. Whether you continue to take THESE classes or not is up to you.
I always say, I can take a beginner obedience class with Cohen, learning sits, downs, and stays, and still get something out of it. Training around other dogs, learning stronger focus around distractions, and learning faster/more accurate behaviours can happen in just about any environment. If he's getting bored and wandering off then, to put it bluntly, you're not doing your job to keep him engaged and challenged. It can be tough when you're new to the sport. Maybe watch some videos online of more advanced dog training sessions to get an idea of how to push your dog to the next step. Your instructors should be able to help you challenge your dog as well. Add distance to behaviours, and ask for more speed, etc.
I'm a huge supporter of agility classes. I think a competent agility instructor is worth his or her weight in gold.
