Whoopee! I'm so thrilled! Sascha passed her Canine Good Citizen test today - I didn't think she'd ever be able to accomplish it because of her fear "issues" (the last one we've been working on is the way she <used to> go ballistic toward other dogs while on leash - she's much better now). We've worked hard at overcoming her aggressive fearful behavior - and she did it!

She had to show that she could follow basic commands, stay and come when called, walk on a loose leash, allow a stranger to touch her ears and her feet and brush her, stay with someone else, out of sight of me for 3 minutes, allow me to greet a stranger, and act friendly toward another leashed dog walking by.

Does anyone else's dog hve their CGC?

Congratulations Sascha!!!:):):) What an awesome accomplishment! You and your mom must be so very proud, especially considering you had a few issues to work out; no easy task My Star has her CGC and I know what hard work and concentration went into those classes! (Star hated the brushing part:D) Hugs and kisses and happy tail wags to you Sascha from Sandra, Cody and Star. Well done!!!:)

Congratulations Sascha!!! What an accomplishment!!

All three of our dogs have there CGC and actually they took a little bit longer test, getting their TDI (therapy Dog) titles. It is the same test, with a few additions...handling loud noises (like a bedpan dropping), Dealing with wheelchairs, walkers, etc. Cincy passed her test about a year ago, and Sadie and Spot both passed it about 6 months ago.

Good job Sascha! So many people think the CGC isn't a big deal... but it's a great certification to have - you should be really proud!

Ilsa got her CGC and TDI when she was 14 months old. I didn't think she'd get her TDI , but she surprised us all!
