Default CGC Training

So I'm thinking about getting phoebe her CGC, she's not my dog so can I still handle her? Phoebe will be in for a LOT of work though so I'm going to make this thread to write out our progress and to ask for help/suggestions along the way. As of now with a little training she could pass test 1, 6, 7 and 10 (she would need to learn a few things but they would be easy). number 4, 5 and 8 will take a bit more work (she'll need to learn to heel and to sit and wait when I stop in the presence of another dog). number 2, 3 and 9 she would fail miserably and will take quite some time to fix. (I'm going by this: http://www.akc.org/events/cgc/training_testing.cfm).

So I'm going to basically work through them going in order, the first thing I am going to teach her is to sit when I come to a stop so that when I stop to talk to the person she does not "break position" then I'll actually add a person to help me.

I also read that the dog fails if she goes to the bathroom during the test. Is the test outside? I don't know how I could prevent Phoebe from going to the bathroom, then again she does not know "heel" so perhaps having her in a constant heel while walking will prevent her from going potty, what do you think?

Assuming her owners both work tomorrow I will get started and tell you how it goes. They don't mention that harnesses are allowed so should i assume it must be a collar?
