Great idea, Jenny, having Timmy try to get used to being away from his Mommy for a while. Bailey, who as you know looked just like Timmy, (not trying to beat a dead horse) lol, failed his CGC because he appeared a little anxious when I left the room. He was always a Mama's boy and it did him in. He passed everything else with flying colors, though, so it was kind of heartbreaking that he missed the very last segment of the test. Good luck with Timmy. It's great that you have lots of time before the test.
That's so funny how similar Bailey and Timmy seem to be, I'm sure Bailey was the sweetest pup ever. I'm flattered that he loves me so much, my daughters never had separation anxiety, so I've never really dealt with this before. I'm sure my doting on the little prince doesn't help either. I'm afraid this will be his nemesis too. Unfortunately Timmy is not appearing a little anxious he's totally freaking out. I'm not in a hurry to do the test, it's ongoing at my training center, but setting a time frame will give me incentive. Funny thing is my SIL has a PWD who does therapy work and she's never had to leave him with anyone.
