I appreciate it, guys. I will go for CGC, and just take the fall and pay again for therapy later!

I did it at a city wide dog event. There were over 10,000 people and dogs every where. They had a roped off area for the CGC. So lots of people and dogs still around but only one dog testing at a time. It was much easier than I had expected.

I'm a CGC evaluator and the guidelines say that during the 3 mins the dog can whine a bit, walk around or pant but can't pull, cry, whine excessively or generally freak out. They do not have to lie or sit still the entire time. As far as the greeting the stranger and dog, they can show interest and sniff in the general direction of the dog or person but not pull towards them, cower or hide or act aggressively. Same with the loud noises- obviously they're going to react in some way but they can't show extreme fear or aggression. In short, a 'normal' reaction is expected. You can talk to, encourage and pet your dog but can't use treats. Try to relax, make it fun and as normal a training session as you can and you'll do fine! Good luck! Oh, the CGC is going to be a title starting 1/13, so if you pass it you can fill out a form next year and it'll be a title rather than a certificate
