Dogs who are CGC and/or TDI... have to be AKC registered?

Cheza,

No, any dog of any breed or mix can get their CGC and TDI.

Okay thanks!

I've been toying with the idea with Lyra (Cheza is too neurotic, it would be against her nature to be that calm) but she is unregisterable.

Which brings me to my next question...

Can a deaf dog do it?

I don't find anywhere on the TDI site any reference to dogs with a physical infirmity such as deafness or blindness.

I would email them and ask if I were you.

Reading through TDI's site, not a thing is mentioned about the dog having to be fully hearing. The health requirements are mostly disease/parasite related. Deaf dogs might pose more of a challenge for the handler, as they do in every day life, but nothing unworkable IMO. Then again, the deaf dog would have an advantage in not being startled or bothered by loud noises/loud patients.

I got a response from TDI this morning saying "Unfortunately we are not able to register deaf dogs."



Oh well.
