Finn is a big talker. The trainer we are working with is one of two evaluators for the CGC test and his comment was, as long as Finn doesn't seem stressed out, they usually chalk it up to being talkative. I know we have a choice; we can leave the dog and walk away ourselves, or the handler takes the dog and walks away. I like the handler taking the dog and leaving because, IMHO, the dog figures Well, if mom is giving my leash up and letting me go with them, it must not be that bad. Even the trainer prefers the dog/handler walk away versus the owner leaving the dog.
