Congrats! I think the CGC is hard for dobes. With the 2 that I've taken through the testers said we were very close to failing when I was out of the room. Hey, dobes aren't meant to be away from their owners

Good job!

Richter cannot pass, because every new dog is a NEW BEST FRIEND!!!! He simply cannot get that close to another dog without attempting a greeting

Haven't really worked on it with Sypha.

Yes Dad had a treat waiting for her!

I do all of the formal training and classes with her and took her through the test, Hubby does the loose leash walking training because I donít have the pantience and get frustrated with it.

Funny that you say this because this time around she was very interested in the other dog, normally she couldnít care less! This time she was like hey, be my friend! We almost didnít pass because of this but just barely squeaked by. Evaluator gave me a stern talking to about the dangers of allowing my dog to go up to a strange dog (she didnít cross on the other side of me and at the end she tried to go over and greet but I stopped her and she listened). First time around she acted like she had never heard the word sit before!

CGC tests really do something to the brain of the handler and dog, I swear.

Ace and I worked for MONTHS prepping with our trainer. We did the test in practice once a week for a few weeks without a single issue. Several trainers helped us, and we all agreed my 10month pup was ready!

We were the last to take the test, and I should have left before we started.. Right before we walked into the ring, Ace decided to let his bowels go in the nearby ring... He'd been potty trained for months, so that was my first sign I should have given up.

Next we get called in (after cleaning our mess up), and there are just several club members with their nose already turned up at him (not many dobermans in the area, it was weird). I heard someone whisper "that dobe will never pass" in the most rude tone ever, so then my nerves are shot, Ace's nerves are feeding off mine, and it was a downhill spiral from there.

He passed most items without issue, but he was so strung up, it was obvious. When it came time to walk through a crowd (including our hateful friends still saying he isnt ready for this test) he just started sniffing everyone and whining. My trainers were ringside and asked the evaluator if we could take a super fast potty break. I was confused but it was granted and i took him outside. While walking out, my trainer recommended a extremely quick "Come to Jesus" meeting with Ace, and to get my head straight and calm down. 2 minutes later, we came back in and tried the crowd again. This time, no funny business. He did his best. The rest of the items were a breeze, and SOMEHOW we passed!

Honestly it was a bit disheartening because we had practiced so hard for so long, I felt our actual performance was a failure. I didn't think we truly earned it. But my trainers came up and reminded me how hard we had been working, and how hard it was to keep calm nerves with hateful people in and around the ring.


Long story short, you accomplished a feat and that is something to be so proud of! Sometimes the way the day unfolds just happens, and to still overcome that is wonderful! You both should be so proud of yourselves!
