AKC Canine Good Citizen test

Telling Tails in Freyburg, Maine has lots of different dog training classes (that’s we’re going to take the treibball class net month). This week they are giving the American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizen test. At at trial in California last winter someone was giving it, but we could never coordinate with her, so didn’t get to try.

The test is supposed to see if your dog has basic training and is well socialized. There’s a list of the requirements here.

Some of the things I know Chico can ace – down stay, come, loose leash walking. Some I have the best feelings about – accepting a friendly stranger, being brushed and having feet and ears handled. Some of it makes me feel challenged – reaction to another dog, supervised separation.

We’ll see what happens. Any way it turns out, it’s a great chance to see how we’re doing.

On another note, here’s a picture I took and forgot to add to the Duck Pond Walk post.

They call the roads around here, the old ones, corduroy roads. Can you see the logs that make up the road bed? That's where the name comes from.
