Canine Good Citizen Testing:
A Few Final Resources

This week we're wrapping up our series on preparation for the Canine Good Citizen examination. Below I'm sharing a video they produced as an example of an ideal test. Just between us I'd like you to know that the environment in your test may not be as controlled as what you see in the video. Neither will the examiner be as accommodating. That said, things happen! Keep the AKC's words in mind:

"If you and your dog do not pass it is not a failure
 but an indication of where you and your dog need more work"

Further Resources from the AKC:

Weekly Wag ButtonWondering what's coming up with Weekly Wag?  Moving with fido, Fulfilling your dog's Bucket List, and Selecting the right companion for your lonely fido. If you're looking to catch up on any of the CGC posts you missed, check the list here.

Join us each week for the Weekly Wag bonding series, held during the Saturday Pet Blogger Hop. The hop is hosted by Life with DogsTwo Little Cavaliers, and Confessions of the Plume. You are welcome to link up here, or check any of their sites for their rules of participation. Happy hopping!

Thanks so much for the great video. Daisy just passed her puppy test, so we're on the right track. Will need to work on the separation and the down-stay. :)
