Quick and Easy Titles/Certifications?

We're looking at renting a cottage in the next couple of months that won't allow GSDs.
Are there any quick or easy "BS" titles/certifications/evaluations I can get for Jax? He really is a good boy, we wouldn't take him anywhere that he'd destroy the place or be a nuisance and we're working on his BH but he's too young for that.
I'm thinking if he's titled and educated, they wouldn't have such a problem allowing us to rent with him.

The CGC would have been my first choice but the next evaluation in our area is October. (if anyone knows otherwise, please speak up!)
The owner didn't seem terribly interested in meeting us because cottages are in such high demand right now, when I asked what type of dogs they allow they said any dogs except those "dangerous breeds" like GSD, pit bulls, Rottweilers, etc. Unless they're service dogs. I didn't pursue the issue until I have all my ducks in a row I can understand where he's coming from... Ontario has lost its mind with this breed legislation but the fuzz ball is of no danger to anyone
I know lots of places on the web that sell fake certifications but don't want to support organizations that make it more difficult for people who actually need service animals to get real ones because of these people.

My above message was hung up and would not print correctly so I deleted what was there and reposted.

And the fact that it is dishonest and disgusting that some people would do such a thing. Also it is against state and federal laws here in the U.S. and in Canada I believe each area has their own laws. Some areas require certification by an approved agency.

If you can find a CGC evaluator, that person might make a special test for you. I know they do that around here.

A lot of rental insurance companies don't allow certain dog breeds. So what you're experiencing may not have so much to do with the personal feelings of the landlord, but rather the insurance policy on the place. If something did happen involving your dog on that property, the policy may not cover it.

Unless you are disabled and Jax was indeed your SD why even go with this thought? Also a CGC (Canada has their own tests) does not even certify a dog as a therapy dog, which has no special housing perks, but might show the landlord that Jax is being trained to be a well-behaved pet.

For a dog under a year old I would enroll him in an obedience class. I myself do not do a CGC evaluation on dogs under a year old.

testing

HI JAX'S MOM

How old is your pup, the reason i ask is that there is a TEC (temperment evaluation certificate testing ) next thursday at the Canadian German shepherd national in Kitchener. Dogs must be at least 1 year old to be tested all breeds are welcome.

Going by her signature I'm saying that Jax. was born Feb. 2 of this year which makes him just under 7 months old.

thanks ilghaus

Jax is too young for the TEC testing , but he is old enough for the CGN test, if you go to www.ckc.ca you will see where and when the nearest test is

cheers
