I definitely enjoy the idea of her becoming a cgc and think its a great idea for dogs and their owners so hopefully these classes will get Guinness and I working on the same page so we can work towards her getting her certificate in therapy. Thank you all so much!
Good for you!! I think that's great.
I definitely learned that it wasn't about my dog nearly as much as it was about me, lol. The insight I got from all those Ob classes was priceless! Please do update!
I know everyone's CGC experience is different, and ours was pretty wild. 30+ dogs all there for CGC and/or TDI testing. It was just.. nuts. I about pee'd myself when we walked in and saw... allll... those... dogs.
I thought, Dear Lord, how are we going to get thru all this with all this distraction and NO treats? Agh! Then test #1 was lining all those dogs up at the fence and a kid running willy nilly banging a pan and screeching like a banshee? I was like, Oh Crap. My dog dealt with it better than I did, he just stared at the kid, like, huh? I was *floored* when not a single dog broke their sit over that.
Anyway, the CGC is cool, but the stuff you learn in Ob? Priceless.
