Re: What is the Canine Good Citizen?
I do not plan on taking CGC specific classes with Lancer. We did it with Kayla but by the time she took the CGC, she had completed her CD and Rally trials through Excellent so the training for those as well as her socialization, went a long way in preparing her for the CD. Like others have said, my biggest concern was the out of site exercise, but she made it through without a hitch.
Plan on going pretty much the same route with Lancer. We will use the classes for advance obedience, rally in preparing for the CGC test instead of adding a CGC specific class. We can break/or add exercises in some of those classes to teach and test some of the CGC specific exercises this time around.
It seems you have identified some of the areas you need to work on. So focus on those for a while and I think you will do fine.
