As Willow and I spend a lot of time together, we've established a good rapport and an understanding of how to best please each other. However, when my wife gets home, Willow gets quite demanding of her, going to her, jumping up, shrill barking. It seems no amount of my wife correcting the behavior stops it (and she uses the same techniques as I do). Willow persists until we have to take a little time out and ask Willow to go to her crate (which she willingly does). A few minutes seems to calm her and then she can come out again. I was wondering if it might be better if they took classes together, to establish a bond, as opposed to me going with Willow. I have no problem going, I quite like training puppies but want the best for familial harmony. We did this with our standard poodles and it worked out fairly well. I'm not familiar enough with Shelties to know if there is any reason that it might not work as well with Willow. Thoughts? Experiences? Advice?
