Wish us luck!!

Cheyenne is going for her CGC test this Sunday...and I'm a nervous wreck! I think she will do very well in all areas except the "greet the dog and the grooming". Cheyenne does not trust new people very well. She warms up to people really fast, and then she will be their best friend, but on first meeting...not so much! I am so nervous when the tester goes to pet her that she will growl...and worse, when they try to touch her paws and brush her! We have worked on this for several weeks, and she has gotten used to the people at training to the point where she is just fine...but having a complete stranger pet and try to brush her...UGH! So, I have a feeling that we are going to have to take this class/test many times!!!

I think the thing I am most worried about is ME and how my stress will make things worse! I am NOT good as staying calm and I know she will feel my stress when this part of the test comes up and make it even harder!! May need to take a Xanax for ME before the test!

Good luck and stay calm, she will feed off your energy. I know, sometimes it's easier said then done.

Good luck..stay calm...remind yourself its not the end of the world. You can do it over again.

In our CGC test the "friendly stranger" wore a black hoodie and gloves. My dog backed away and was suspicious..frankly, I dont blame him...thus, we are doing it again!!

Text me when you are done, let me know how it went.

I believe 3 of Panzer's littermates are coming on Sunday for some puppy play/training time. Wish you guys lived closer.

Ooooh! I wish we lived closer, too! That would be awesome! Panzer starts puppy classes next week after he gets his next set of shots, but it would be great if he could be with his littermates! He already knows sit, down, touch and watch!
