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

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
Thanks for the input!

I've read quite a bit about it, but I thought I would ask the opinion of the masses because sometimes what you read about in the "official" literature isn't what actually goes down in real life.

If I can get my dog back to the way she was with handling when I first adopted her, we will pass. She used to be very good with examinations, but when she got an ear infection and people kept accidentally causing her pain, that went out the window. I don't consider her shy around people, she is just very plainly saying "Please don't touch my ears. I don't like it." As for the "reaction to another dog" part, she is trained to ignore other dogs, not say hello to them.
I went in blind doing ours.. Figured it would be something fun.. My dogs have a lot of training on them so for the most part it was easy..

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..

misslesleedavis1 My trainer does it, she told me Tyson would most likely fail because he is nervous.

Good point, lmao!

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.
