IME the supervised separation depends on the judge. Some will allow a bit of whining as long as they don't feel the dog is being disruptive or overly stressed. Others will fail for much less.

Mira actually took it twice because they first one was at our home club and I felt like it was cheating since she knew the evaluator and the helpers and even the helper dog lol. So we took it a second time at the FCR nationals that year and passed again but that one was weird...a local club conducted the test and we were up first...the "helper dog" was a Chessie who growled and lunged at 1 yr old Mira who was sitting next to me then growled at other dogs going by. /sarcasm/ Great helper dog /sarcasm/. So they removed him from the facility and got another dog. The distraction exercise was a helper dropping a bag and having treats and toys fall out all over the place next to you and your dog. And for the supervised separation, the helpers took the dogs and walked them out of the room instead of having the handlers leave while the dogs stayed behind.

Weirdest test I've ever seen, and my previous three tests took place at three different clubs in two different states.
