Question What training certificates does your dog have.

With over 2000 members, I wonder what percentage of the membership have reached the level of training where their dog has taken a one-time test for obedience and or temperament -- not instinct only.

We've got the STAR puppy rating and the CGC. Not sure if the STAR puppy is a certificate though

I voted no, but I plan to get a certificate for at least cgc, maybe tracking and obedience.

Wow, I forgot about the Star Puppy. Mine was not a single test, but in the course of the weeks in classes we did quite a bit with puppies. Puppies of an age where they would not be likely to be as shy. Not an adult evaluation, but still good.

Ours came after the 6 wk course, but it was an actual 'test'.

Yes, Kenya is CGC (multiple times, and used as the tester dog), TDI, West MI Therapy cert, and TT. Coke is 2x CGC. Nikon is STAR, CGC, BH, FO. Will do more TTs as soon as I can find them. Pan is only 3 months but will have his STAR next week. The first three dogs also have other titles beyond basic obedience/temperament.

Argos, Anka, and Ike all have their BHs and are all TC by GSDCA. Argos, Anka, and Cade have their CGC's. Cade is getting ready for his BH, and he wasn't old enough when they did the TC's in our area- when they have another one I will take him and hopefully Tag will be old enough at that point too. I really ought to go get a CGC on Ike, just haven't gotten around to it. Tag went through the STAR puppy course also.

Moses has his CGC. I haven't bothered to test the rest of my pack. I train them all and they all have equal manners and I personally don't need the piece of paper or title to tell me my dogs are good citizens.

Selzer the only problem with this poll is you may not have many people (like me) who are willing to say they have not done any temperament testing.
