What kind of class and level is this? What did the trainer tell you?

We've had that happen in classes (mine as well as the other 2 trainers at the facility) before...
Often recommend better management during class and privates to specifically target the problem if outside the scope of the class. If it is in the curriculum or an exercise easily tweeked then we work on it. :)

Management wise we normally encourage heavily reinforcing matwork for all downtime and using food magnets(soft food in a tube or continuous multiple treats from hand - dog's nose never leaves hand) in combo with keeping a very short grip on lead (large dog owners often hold collar) when entering, leaving, and needing to quickly move their dogs are in the room. A couple people tug to move their dogs quickly and efficiently. We have students down (and reward during the stay) their dogs if out on the floor and taking a short break to explain or having the wait for a turn. I have people reward their dogs when others move past, bark, etc. :)

New setting and new dogs. May just be seeing that your training hasnt generalized. Up the rate of reinforcement for now. Pay well for attention on you, and just mangage well. Bet things will be back to normal in no time.:)
