Last night, our pup, Sira, passed her CGC test. A picture of her celebrating with a friend after the tests...
The CGC - taken from http://www.akc.org/events/cgc/training_testing.cfm/
Test 1: Accepting a friendly stranger
Test 2: Sitting politely for petting
Test 3: Appearance and grooming
Test 4: Out for a walk (walking on a loose lead)
Test 5: Walking through a crowd
Test 6: Sit and down on command and Staying in place
Test 7: Coming when called
Test 8: Reaction to another dog
Test 9: Reaction to distraction
Test 10: Supervised separation
Because to be a responsible owner, you need to do more than love and feed your dog.
