From what I can tell, the test is almost identical to the test for CGC... I say, why not go for it?

From what I can tell, the judge is so far nice! I've been e-mailing her. The only thing on the test Hershey hasn't been exposed to is, hospital equipment.. But I guess since my grandma wheezes, hes used to that. But other equipment... yikes! I'll have to give it a shot at least! I hope he'll do well around those things. Wheelchairs, hes been by a couple of them.

No you should take it just to see where you need to work. Victor failed it the first time, i half way expected him to. I didn't however expect it to be as hard as it was ..my first dog's therapy sponser wasn't half as tough. Some dogs have to take it many times.
