If you dog does not pass the CGC (Canine Good Citizen) test the first or second time, keep working on it. They will give you a list of items the dog passed and items the dog did not pass. Keep working on it. It gives you time to strengthen the bond between you and your dog.

I have been training my Shepherd to allow a stranger to hold his leash while I walk away. This also allows a stranger to walk away with your dog. This is one of the tests a dog has to pass in order to get a Canine Good Citizen award. I would like to see the CGC do away with this one. I am not comfortable allowing anyone to walk away with my dog. There are too many dog thieves out there today. How many agree with this?
When your dog is getting ready to take it’s Canine Good Citizen test, tire it out. Go about an hour early to let the dog calm down.
