No, I just felt like doing it again. The one that I did at 4 months, I hadn't intended to do. I just had her with me that day, and did it to see if she could. I did it again at 2 just because I wasn't sure a CGC at 4 months would be taken seriously, as temperaments change. I wanted to have a more recent one on record.
Not a problem
The SG2 is a show rating through the SV. We went to a regional show in 2010. SG is the rating, and she was the second place dog in the Young Females class.
CAC is another show rating, through the IABCA (International All Breed Canine Association). It's a show where your dog is judged by four different judges (they are conformation judges in varying venues in the US, Canada and Europe). The CAC is their "National Champion" rating.
The BH is the Begleithund. It incorporates an obedience routine, and then also includes a temperament test.
The AD is the Ausdauerpruefung, another SV qualification. This is to measure the endurance of the dog, and involves a 12 mile bike ride where the dog jogs alongside on-leash.
The CD is an AKC title: The Companion Dog. Similar in a way to the BH, it displays the dog's obedience on and off leash. The CD must be passed three times (called "legs") under at least two different judges.
HOT is simply a designation that means Handler-Owner Trained. People who use this designation use it to display that the dog was not sent out for training, but rather was worked with by them to achieve its titling.
Finally, the CERF is an eye test, to certify that the dog is not suffering from eye problems that could potentially be passed on to offspring.

I am looking for a Canine Liability insurance for my 6yr old GSD. Unfortunately, he bit a stranger in the yard last year which lead to a claim and our Home Owners Insurance dropped us. Most of the new HOI quotes we are getting do not include Canine, so I am looking for coverage for...
