Smile CGC Pass!

We passed the CGC test last night with flying colors. I was worried for nothing.....
My dog did everything perfect, I couldn't have asked for more. I was really worried about the supervised visitation, since she had an awful time with it last week (howled and lunged), but she sat and waited last night like it was no big deal!

I know the CGC is not that big of a deal to most people, but this is my first GSD and the 1st dog I have trained. She is totally mine and not the 'family dog'. I just love her to pieces! She is a LOT of dog, I bit off more than I realized when I got her! Thankfully, I have the time and energy that she needs. She is one that would not do well crated 8 hrs. a day.......she is a true working dog and could 'go' 22 hrs. a day! Hopefully, at some point she will slow down a bit!!!!

She will be a yr. old next month, so certainly not the youngest GSD to pass, but, my goal was to have it done by one year and we made it! We are already started in agility and another obedience class, so this is just our beginning.

Thanks! Will get some pictures up later today-

I think you may have sensed that I was in a bit over my head with this dog in the beginning
I wasn't sure quite what to do with her. We have always had Golden Retrievers and they were basically living furniture! Didn't even need to teach them much of anything, they were SO mellow......they just kind of hung out and followed us around!
I wasn't even really a 'dog' person before this! Now I nearly live and breathe working and training her! She is just such an amazing dog, in spite of me!!!

Don't know what you are talking about, getting a CGC is a

BIG DEAL

That many people would never be able to get with their dogs!

So congrats and keep up the good work!



Too funny about how you had Goldens and they were so easy. My first dog was a Lab and I also thought the dog thing was a piece of cake, then I got a GSD and learned what raising a 'real' dog was like! ACK!!!

Congratulations to both of you!

It is a big deal, especially with your first dog! This was your first big step. Hopefully it leads you to the next step.

I was hooked after the CGC........always wanting more! We now have the RAE title and the CDX and training for UD. I never thought I could do this. So, stick with it and have a wonderful journey!
