Don't be too hard on yourself. With a new dog comes learning new things. I know how it is about the whole "I should know this" line of thought, but we learn new things all the time, and each dog is different. We never stop learning that's for sure.
When I was in class getting Olivia, I was grooming her for the first time, and when I brought the brush that I was using down her back at one point, she let out a bark that scared the crap out of me and made me think I had hurt her. Needless to say, I don't think she likes that particular brush, (I've stopped using it on her anyway in favor of other grooming tools). That also ended the grooming session, albeit prematurely, for fear she'd end up hating me or something. She's obviously now over it and doesn't hate me, which is a good thing :). It takes time for dog and handler to get use to one another, and the little bumps and such along the way are normal, they really are, contrary to the fact that it doesn't seem like it at the time.
Anyway, enough of my longwindedness. Good luck with the rest of training.
