Just a quick update, Annie passed her CGC! I was so proud, the trainer distracted her while I snuck out for the three minute separation, so time was all but up till she realized I wasn't the one holding the leash! I still think this part of the test is silly, I would never leave my dog with a stranger. Thanks for all the great advice!

Congratulations! That's wonderful!

Remember, earning titles is about the journey, not the result. This always helps me when I'm frustrated with a particular training issue.

But it sure is nice to have that title when you've got it!

Buddy has Separation Issues.

When I was training him for his CGC I would say "Buddy, Mommy will be back. Stay with ______". I used this saying at home, too. Consistency really helped him.

If I am home he has a 15 minutes max. before he would start crying/fussing with me out of sight. If I am not going to be back within 10 minutes I will NEVER say this phrase.

If I am out of sight for more than 5 minutes at a store or someplace- Example leave him with my mom to I can go get something- She says she starts to look around and becomes fidgety.

I do what I like and like what I do. Yorkies- Cozy (4/1/06), Roxy & Zoey (2/11/08), Lucy (4/6/09); Golden- Buddy (4/13/09- Rescued 12/11) Maine Coon cats- Mika (1998) and Tallulah (2000)

Good Job glad you passed!!!

You would be surprised how many times I have left Jige with people he didnt know. I have done this at shows alot. I have let kids take him for a walk around the building, asked someone to hold his leash while I use the bathroom or run to my car for something. I have thought about it but have not done it is have someone else show him for me. Jige will willing go with anyone....which can be a bad thing too if you are worried about someone stealling your dog.
