Bacardi Passed Her Cgc Test!


Recommended Posts

We went to go take our CGC test today after finishing out obedience class!

 

WE PASSED!!!!!!

 

The evaluater for the test thought Bacardi was just a sweetheart! And loved her to pieces! We also met another greyhound who was also taking her test! Nice to see another one around here!

 

She did wonderful for greeting a stranger, letting a stranger touch her feet, ears, brushing her. Did GREYT on her heeling and halts and watching me. I was so impressed with my girl!

 

I was a little worried about our down/stays. We weren't allowed to touch our dogs at all when we did a sit...stay...down...stay...and then..Bacardis arch nemesis! the COME! When we practiced our comes on thursday she just sat there and looked at me (she has no recall whatsoever most of the time) well today during the test I put her in a down position, walked 10ft. away and in the my high pitched, squeaky voice I could I said, Cardi, COME! and in one fowl leap and bounced to me without her feet touching the ground! The tester and crowd got a huge laugh out of that one. and she was very excited to finish the rest of the test. She did wonderful and I am so proud of her!

 

CGC is passed! Now, I think we may start doing some Rally work with her! Cannot wait! YAY!

That is wonderful!! I'm hoping some day for the pet therapy international certification but Annie will not go down on command 80% of the time. Need to work on that.

 

I've just heard about TDI and we have a testing in Wichita on the 14th...I'm going to sign up to go and take Bacardi. Can't wait! Heard about it last night and figured we would try it since she did so well on her CGC. I'd love for her to be a therapy dog. and she LOVES to do the DOWN command, she'd rather lay then sit, lol!

Good luck on your TDI test! Henry is a certified Therapy Dog, but we don't do much with it anymore just because of time constraints.

Are you thinking about any formal obedience work with your dobie? They're super smart.

Congrats, Bacardi!!!

 

When I first got Dragon, we took a beginner's obedience course and he didn't do very well (pretty much right off the track and overwhelmed), but in the past few years we have done a lot of training on our own with him. We are starting the intermediate and advanced courses in December and I hope to get his CGC by April. He sits and will come very well, but doesn't seem to 'get' the down command.

 

My goal is to get him TDI certified so that I can take him to work with me a few days a week (NP in psych/mental health).
