I know I've talked in the past that I didn't think I had a chance to pass the CGC test after reading the requirements on the AKC website.
But, while we were at the CPE trial this Sunday, Mum mentioned to a few of our friends that a Canine Good Citizen tester will be at the upcoming Show N Go we running in in a couple of weeks. And wonders never cease, there just happened to be a CGC tester tenting with my friends. Mum talked with her a while, and told her about me. She asked Mum to bring me over to meet her and she would do a little quick testing to see if maybe I could pass.
She thought I'd pass that test with flying colors. She even had me do the 20 foot meet and greet with her big, big Airdale Terrier (my biggest chance for failure), and I didn't really even show that much interest. The key Mum thinks is that she needs to give me commands and give me a job - like sit and stay - while we perform these CGC duties. It really kept me focused.
So, we're gonna try it. The big day is September 6th (or 7th if it's raining). Mum is taking me and Gracie to the agility Show N Go, let us run a couple of runs each, and then she thought that I'd be less wound up and we could do the test.
What do you think? Will I pass?
