Finally I am a Canine Good Citizen! Yes, I can now put the letters CGC after my name. Now I know you think I should have had those letters long ago and I have to agree with you. Many of my friends have those letter and I was a bit embarrassed that I didn't. But since Barbara is always evaluating CGC tests, she can't test me. So tonight she had a friend who is a CGC evaluator come to Paw In Hand to give a test to her students. She decided that we would take the test. Of course I passed everything!
I thought it was easy peasy. The AKC says you have to do 10 skills to pass and get the letters after your name and a certificate. Here is what I had to do:
1. Sit politely to meet a friendly stranger.
2. Sit for petting.
3. Appearance and grooming.
4. Loose leash walk.
5. Walk through a crowd
6. Sit, down, stay.
8. Reaction to another dog.
9 Reaction to distractions.
I am so pleased that I passed and can say I am a Canine Good Citizen.
