Morrie is 11 months old and we are currently in our third level of agility training. He is incredibly intelligent, he picks up things likethat - there doesn't seem to be any sense of "learning" for him - one day I am asking him to do something and he can't, and the next day he does, just like that. I really couldn't ask for more... but we do have one minor annoyance. He gets very agitated if I am not focusing on him 100% - not out on the field, but when we are standing around, getting direction from our teacher, he will bark and whine at the end of the leash until I pay attention to him. It's not a real PROBLEM, it's just slightly disruptive, and I get distracted and miss most of the things the teacher is saying. To reprimand him is giving him exactly what he wants -- attention, but if I let him bark, it gets other dogs in the class started. Help!
