Max is one year old now. He has taken many, many OB classes, dock diving, agility , etc. Now we are taking a class for the CGC. He is a superstar at all the criteria, EXCEPT of course, the supervised separation.
He doesnt freak out, just whines and stares at the door. Bless his heart! All the other dogs, well, I am not sure they even realize that their owner left or that a different handler is with them. Pretty sure that facet of behavior is bred out of golden-doodles!! (sorry, hope I didnot offend anyone)
I have some ideas to help him, and we are working on it. Not sure if this will be fixed by the test date..two weeks. How much whining is allowed and do they give some extra leeway for german whiners?
Just really looking for some hand-holding here!!
