|llombardo||3 of mine have their CGC's and I'm working on the fourth one(golden puppy) the obedience class I take has three levels and covers everything on the CGC during that time. First class we worked heavily on greeting each other and the dogs ignore each other. I have a golden ,he loves everyone and he is doing well with it.|

|Stosh||You can go to akc.org and read exactly what's required for the test. Any training in a class should set you up to be able to pass easily. It doesn't sound as though that's what's happening in your situation|

|Stosh||I'm a CGC evaluator and there are a few others in our training club. We always go by the script provided in the booklet so the testing is consistent. And no- there isn't any interaction between the dogs when greeting. The point is that the dog should sit or stand calmly at your side when another person with a leashed dog approaches. The evaluators only touch the dogs as part of the test, there aren't corrections made. We have off leash play time if anyone wants so the dogs can run off a little energy first|

A lot will depend on the evaluator.. Mine was very thorough.. Even with the hands on part..
On the greeting of a stranger and there dog.... The dogs do not go nose to nose.. and you can keep a little distance..

I do know that some people will put their dogs through testing just to have the paper to prove something. And it's no laughing matter when the evaluator gets bitten. But I've never heard of them asking for it, lol.
