We're going for it!

Grace and I are preparing for the CGC test!

 Four months ago, if you asked Grace to perform these tasks, there would be no way she'd go for it. Granted, she was/is a very friendly dog and loves everyone, it was the initial greeting she was very shy and unsure about and would even back away sometimes. We have worked on building her confidence, bring her new places, meeting new people, new dogs, building on her obedience, and all these things have helped her blossom.

My obedience club is having the CGC test in a few weeks and they/I feel Grace is ready. There are a few classes leading up to the test to practice the situations the CGC calls for.

In the first class, we talked about what the test is, how each part is 'graded', what's expected and then did a run through with pointers and guidance. Grace was awesome during the practice run! Completely different (in a good way) dog from four months ago. I am extremely confident in her and have no doubt that with continued work she will feel the same about herself!


  1. Good luck! Im sure you guys will do great and be proud no matter what. Its sounds like she has come a long way.

  2. Good luck - I'm sure you and Grace will have fun and do a great job! You've done such a wonderful job with both of your dogs.

  3. Good luck! I'm sure you guys will do great! :o)

  4. Good luck with your CGC test! I'm sure Grace will do you proud :)

  5. I know Grace will do well :-)
    I love all the pictures on your blog. I wish my camera was that nice.

  6. Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day and saying hi. I love that your dogs are rescues! They're so cool looking too, I loooove black/white speckles (or whatever the "correct" term is, LOL) on dogs. Gorgeous photos as well! Looking forward to getting to know you and your pups better. Best of luck (and fun!) as you and Grace prepare for the CGC test.
