    :confused: When ever I show my dog Rigo (flashy red male of 22 months) and its a male judge he will not let the judge look him over. He will stand for his mouth to be looked at and the side view, but when the judge goes to place his hands on or look from rear he will keep spinning around and backing off, and has even grumbled a couple of times. Its fustrating as he will stand perfectly for a female judge. Some people have said its because hes trying to protect you being a female handler, this could be true as he will grumble at any male walking towards us when we go for walks just the two of us. Can anyone suggest anything?
    Could it be just his age immaturity? Any suggestions welcome.
