4-H is a youth development program in Canada and the US. Because of that, a lot of the coaches and instructors in a lot of the activities that they participate in are volunteers.
It could be very possible that to show in any 4-H show, the OP needs to participate in these lessons.
Plus, we all know that everyone has their own version of what is right and wrong, and it is also very possible that the instructor was taught the puppy paws hand position, so to her, that is correct.
