we had a whiner in one of our tests that i assisted with. The owner stepped out of the area TOWARDS the door so the dog kind of panicked that he was being left behind. We reversed the positioning so I took the dog out where he couldnt see his owner and the owner stayed in the area. It worked. They passed the test and decided to take the course again to further cement the desired behaviors but work more heavily on the supervised seperation portion. If your evaluator is willing to give it a shot, perhaps the above is a good way to do it.
The more people I meet and talk to,the more I love my dogs and their intelligence.
