|My bf and I like to go out to eat a lot, so Misha gets left home for that. He cries and barks at first, but quiets down when he realizes that isn't bringing us back.
When we get home, there is a VERY enthusiastic greeting. He is not yet fully desensitized to us leaving, so there is lots of jumping and running around us and welcome home noises.
For obedience training, they're very smart dogs. I wouldn't say they train easy though. With the right incentives they pick things up VERY quickly, however they are also able to figure out when you're trying to get them to do things they don't want to. XD
Be aware that they do have a pretty high prey drive. They could be doing fantastic with recall training, and then suddenly they "can't hear you" when they see/smell something more interesting they want to go after. Luckily, because they are such a pack breed, they aren't likely to go too far if they do take off (by dog standards >_>).
With the shipping, I don't know for sure, but I'd guess many don't ship because of the kind of stress it puts on dogs and the uncertainty of not being able to meet who their pups are going to in person. So far, all of the breeders I've met love their dogs like children, and want the absolute best for them. They take placing a pup very seriously, and will deny someone if they don't think it's going to be a good fit.
