Red face Canine Good Citizen Training

Hey everyone!

I'm thinking about advanced training for Ponyo, and getting her a "Canine Good Citizen" certification! Anybody ever gotten their Chihuahua this?

I live in Colorado so I don't know how differently the rules apply. I'm also considering an advanced training class. Any information would be most appreciated!!!

I have done up to advanced training with Mia &Raisin. Lily started right away and is completing Novice this weekend at 8 months. She will start advanced right after. It is so much fun and maybe even more important for "us"! They have all three thrived in classes full of German shepards, dobermans, labs, etc. they are by far the smallest in the class. My girls show them all how it is done.
Lily would prance into her classes to awwwsss & laughs. The owner of the Cane Corso put it into words..."she showed them all, without a doubt outperforming them all". Her husband is a policeman, they are training for protection.
I would recommend googling and looking for the best training facility, it is wonderful bonding for all of you.
I take them to nursing homes and hospitals, travel with them, etc. we can take them out with us to outside restaurants and the sit quietly while we eat.
Do it!! You will not be dissapointed.

Debby has the right idea. Canine Good Citizen training is all on leash, except for the stay and come cues. My older dog has her CGC/TDI and worked at Rush University Hospital for several years, before she got her heart murmur, and I retired her. I took several obedience classes (puppy class and beginner) and then I took the CGC/TDI test. She passed it the first time! Have a great time---just make sure any training you do is positive. No jerking/negative stuff.

I've used all positive reinforcement to train her up to this point, and it has been working miracles. Part of the reason I want to see how far she can go! She's come so far already for only being with me and in my heart since December.

Thank you, ladies!

Please keep us updated how you do! Canine Good citizen is definitely a big goal for me and Lubu, and I'm hoping to get him started in agility training once he is a bit bigger. I found an awesome training facility only 20 minutes from my house. Unfortunately I might be moving over the summer to Maine, hopefully we can find another place there!

Mine is a Service Dog so he would likely pass a CGC but has never done it. We are doing a Public Access Test instead. He's been a working dog for a long time but he developed a bit of a distraction issue so we've been working with a trainer on it (they have other dogs to use as distractions) and they will run him through a PAT at the end for me. Handy.

That is why I recommend a good training facility. Mine, anyways, has controlled distractions with other dogs, loud noises, bouncing ball right next to them, etc. thank goodness you your service dog was able to find competent help.
They can all be trained in obedience CGC/TDI, but unless it is done in a group of dog and with distractions, I don't believe it is complete.

Yeah- my boy has always been a great worker but when I was gone 8 months he developed a few "quirks" that weren't very desirable for a service dog. I did all of his original training by myself but decided to work with these professionals for the touch up stuff. It's going awesome.

He's still excellent for school and most public places, we are doing touch up right now though for the rusty spots. :P
