Bellamy is more vocal than any shepherd I've ever met. His high-pitched yips are adorable, but not when I just came home, or want to give him affection (a lot of affection and praise makes him yippy), and the worst is when we're training. I'm trying to train new things without getting a headache, but he won't. stop. barking and whining. Like right now I just stopped a session of training "weave" between my legs to sit down and write this. He's really good at it, learned it very quickly and he enjoys training, but he keeps yipping every time I give the cue and also when I praise him.
