I believe he will have to pass the CGC test first and then the therapy test, which both require your two worries. You know what you have to work on, so focus on that for a couple months before you move forward. Midnite was awful and very leash reactive , but once he started going to classes he got used to seeing other dogs and it became no big deal for him. He went from growling, lunging, and hackles up to no reaction at all within a couple weeks. The out of sight test is tricky. Midnite did look for me and that was what he did the whole time, but he didn't cry or whine, he just had his nose in the air. He really loves going to the nursing home, I tell him its time to go to work and he seems to know what I mean. It makes me feel good too.
