I know exactly how you feel. My shepard X seems to be a real whinger (she has suffered seperation anxiety in the past). If she wants attention, if im late for breakfast or a walk she turns it on and it is sooo annoying (It happens daily). For me I can lock her outside and seperate her till she gets a grip. maybe you could remove you dog from class when it whinges (tie it up) and then when it stops release it with positive praise. The next time she does it tie her up and so on. Hopefully she will get the idea that the behaviour is not acceptable and see being in the class as a reward for good behaviour. I know it is a hard thing to do but i think she may be using it to her advantage (attention) this is a tough one and i hope someone finds a solution, i could really use the peace.
