Default Does your dog have a CGC/CGN?

Does your dog have a CGC/CGN?

If yes or no: does your dog have a rally or obedience title?

If yes: has your dog taken a therapy dog test as well?

Buzz and Bailey took the CGC test a looooong time ago (2002 maybe? I have record of it somewhere) but they took and passed that before I got interested in competitive dog sports. Bailey retook the CGC plus the TDI portion in 2006ish? But then I realized she hated therapy work (strangers touching me if I don't want them too... ew, cooties). Buzz worked as a therapy dog under Therapy Dogs Incorporated for a couple years, but they have a practical test not a set-up test.

I would like to take the CGC with Gabby at some point this year, just because I guess? It's just a goal to have!

Does your dog have a CGC/CGN? Yes. Cohen got hers when she was 8 months old.

If yes or no: does your dog have a rally or obedience title? Yes. First rally title was at 10 months. First obedience title was probably around 2 years.

If yes: has your dog taken a therapy dog test as well? No. Cohen doesn't like people enough to ever be a therapy dog.

Frag and Recon both have CGCs - no other obedience titles.

No therapy work, Frag wouldn't like it and Recon would be in everyone's laps...

Frag got his around 2.5 yrs I believe? And Recon at 9 mos.

Patton will be taking a test soon. Just cause I like the certificates. I have no reason for them otherwise. Maybe someday Recon will do therapy work. When he stops jumping.

I voted yes because Menchi has her CGC.

I am going to try with Watson to get his CGC sometime this year. He needed more time due to basenji opinions and shenanigans

I am thinking about starting some rally classes with Menchi this year. I am not sure how much Watson would take to rally or obedience. He has however tried agility and liked that a lot.

Neither of my two have any titles as of yet, but they are both going to complete their first lure coursing titles sometime this summer.

Also neither of my two would make good therapy dogs... Watson is too much of a brat and Menchi would be a wee bit too enthusiastic

Em will shortly. She's more than ready for it, just haven't been able to get to any events to get it done! Stupid work. Em has exceeded the criteria for a PAT and would without a doubt pass any therapy dog tests. Nowhere around here really requires therapy dog teams to be through an org, though. We plan on making an obedience debut later this year, possibly rally as well.

Shadow tried about ten years ago (she was 2, I was 8. Not the best idea.) and they dismissed us partway through the test because she had some major stranger anxiety going on at the time. It crushed my confidence and I've had major trialing/CGCing anxiety since, lol. I may try again with her since she's mellowed out as she's gotten older, we'll see.

Copper is almost ready for it, or was when I left... Dad probably broke her manners and I'll need to start from scratch

A CGC is Bloo's goal right now, the primary issue is passing by a strange dog and greeting a stranger. She did meet a neighbor she's never seen the other day and was pretty good (jumpy jellybean, hahaha). I have faith that she will get there with some more work.

Nope, neither. Previous dogs have, not my current bratfaces.

Apparently I'm supposed to work towards it, per Megan. So, we'll see!

Neither of mine are acceptable therapy dog material.

Mia has a CGC which she earned at around 1 1/2 years on her first try. No rally, obedience, or therapy dog titles. She would be a terrible therapy dog since she hates everyone. lol

Summer has (had?) some sort of therapy dog test. I'm not sure if you have to renew them or not? But that was earned well prior to me owning her. She was a therapy dog that went to nursing homes and she was the trick/agility dog that would put on shows for her first 4 years of life. I don't know which org they were with. Never did her CGC but she would pass it easily. I have not done any therapy work with her.

I have no interest in obedience but am contemplating picking up rally with Mia again since agility is out now. But I really don't like it very much so probably won't happen haha.

For Auggie:
Does your dog have a CGC/CGN? Yes, he has his CGC
Does your dog have a rally or obedience title? Yes, he has a rally title and is one leg away from his RA. He's an obedience drop-out currently, though we might go back once he's older. Like maybe when he's 14 he can get an obedience title LOL. We both find it boring to be honest.
Has your dog taken a therapy dog test as well? I would like him to, but since the same weekend he got his CGC, they have not offered one around here.


For Payton:
Does your dog have a CGC/CGN? Yes, he has his CGC
Does your dog have a rally or obedience title? NOPE. He was entered in a rally trial and it blew up. I think he could probably do it now, but with limited time to put into training and limited funds to enter trials, agility gets the focus and the rally stuff doesn't matter.
Has your dog taken a therapy dog test as well? No, and I don't think he quite has the temperament to do it. He's just a little too... high-strung.

Pepper/Georgie: No, no, and no. Although I wouldn't mind getting Georgie her CGC. I don't think Pepper could pass though, she would probably bomb the whole "accepting a stranger" thing. NO NO NO TOUCHIE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE RUN AWAAAAY





Also I like a DQ Blizzard.

Nope, definitely not.

Also nope, definitely not. Maybe eventually?!

Yes, Laura's idea is brilliant about teaching it as the Stand for Exam! Now we just need to work on that portion.
