the main task of a dog trainer should be trying to build better relation between the dog and its owner and make the dog feel secure and praised when listened to the owner. The dogs often gets stubborn and don't obey the words of the owner when there isn't much interaction between them which may be caused due to time pressure as quoted by you. So, if there is a good relation between owner n the dog then there is no probs even if the dog just takes advantage of socialization period and ignores the class... So, I have to agree with you that in dog training, more has to be taught to owner than the dog itself
