Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Luna is enrolled in a Good Canine Citizenship class and part of the test it to be on a supervised separation. We practiced last night and she was awful. She was so upset when I left and I don't know how to fix it. She doesn't act like that when I leave her home alone in her crate, she settles right down. But I can't leave the house with her roaming free or she will destroy things so i'm not sure how to prepare her for that part of the test. Suggestions?

Do you have friends or family who wouldn't mind working with you? The best way I would think is put it to a cue (such as bye-bye) and walk away and have your friends/family present her with something awesome (such as a PB kong) and come back in the allotted time (3 mins) and take away the kong. Practice using different people in different places. Honestly this was the easiest for my dogs lol

I was also wondering about this part, as our dogs are almost never alone without one of the house members there and will break a stay to get to us. Thanks Kristina! :]

My husky passed his CGC with flying colors. The "cue" is a great idea! Also, make sure she is tired before you take her to class. Remember a tired dog is a happy dog (and a happy owner!) If she is tired she may be less apt to try and follow you, but take Kristinas advice- practice makes perfect! I found that if I made sure Rig had a lot of exercise before class he was more apt to "chill" than to bounce around and act like the class clown! LOL
