CGC Passed

This forum is all about training and behavior. Everything from potty training to working titles!

I am happy to say that Sacha passed her CGC today :dance: (she actually had it done before, but I lost her certificate, and had never sent the info to AKC to have it recorded with her registration)!!!!!

While not really a big deal, it was cool to see all the other dogs struggling. I had to show off a little bit during the heel: I made her do an attention heel with me. People were coming up to me after asking how I got her do that.

Anyway, thank you for letting me share my happy news!!!!

There were 10 components:

The evaluator came up and introduced himself, and he shook my hand...didn't pay attention to Sacha.

Then, he asked me if he could pet her, and he did.

Then he asked if he could brush her, and he did (he didn't check her ears or her paws...but she had already given paw everytime he reached down to her)...

He made me walk with her...he didn't ask me to heel, just walk...we had to do a left turn, right turn, about, and halt.

He had us walk through a crowd of people and some of the people had canes and strollers (as a distraction).

She had to sit and down on comman, and she had to do a stay (I could return immediately).

I had to call her to me.

I had to shake hands with someone who had a dog with them.

Finally, the one they said a lot of people have trouble with was the supervised separation for 3 minutes. They said a lot of dogs have trouble with it....Sacha was fine (she doesn't care if I'm around or not)...

He should have also checked her ears and teeth, as well as run his hands down at least her front legs to her paws.

Congrats on passing!

Jen,

Because Sacha's ears were highly infected (I turned them over for the tester to see the redness and swelling) he did not touch them.

As for teeth, well this is straight from the AKC website:

Test 3: Appearance and grooming
This practical test demonstrates that the dog will welcome being groomed and examined and will permit someone, such as a veterinarian, groomer or friend of the owner, to do so. It also demonstrates the owner's care, concern and sense of responsibility. The evaluator inspects the dog to determine if it is clean and groomed. The dog must appear to be in healthy condition (i.e., proper weight, clean, healthy and alert). The handler should supply the comb or brush commonly used on the dog. The evaluator then softly combs or brushes the dog, and in a natural manner, lightly examines the ears and gently picks up each front foot. It is not necessary for the dog to hold a specific position during the examination, and the handler may talk to the dog, praise it and give encouragement throughout.


Because Sacha handed him her paws while he was petting her, he did not re-examine them.
