That's how the CGC test is...they don't have to hold her back. If you can tell your dog to stay, and hand the leash to someone else and walk away its perfectly fine. Just that they actually get a little more leeway and its not a full blown out of sight stay. The dog can switch positions...it can even stand up and walk around a bit, but the leash can't get super tight for too long I believe. So it can't look like the person is actually physically trying to prevent your dog from going to you.

If I hand the leash to someone and she feels physically restrained if I even take one step back she has a fit! lol

Yet I can do a down-stay, drop the leash and walk away with other people around in class and she's fine.

I'm going to try the loose leash thing with the stay, maybe if she doesn't feel like they are taking her away, she'll be ok. She's so sweet and loves people, but holy hannah, when they try and hold her back it's like a personal tragedy for her!

Starting Jan 2013, the CGC will be a title. Anyone who has it now can have it changed from a certificate to a title with a form and $20.
