Chopper is now a CGC!!!!!!!
Four dogs tested tonight and two passed, us and Macy, a PWD (that has passed 3 times, she just takes it over and over b/c her handler owns the training club). The untrimmed PWD in the picture is Zeus and he did not pass, but he’s just a puppy and he got 5/10. The fourth dog was also a PWD and she did not pass b/c she was scared of the man that did the stranger test. Chopper let the man pet her, inspect her, and groom her! She even stepped out of place and leaned into him. For the 3 minute leave, I put her in a down-stay and left her with a little boy. He said “she didn’t move a single muscle!”. She got a chicken thigh and is now working on a new rawhide.
Thank you Kim and Julie and whoever else did all the work with this dog!!!
We plan to start training for the pet therapy club in a few weeks.
