Michelle, did you have Ruby on a different collar at the time of the test?

I'm not sure where else I'd be able to fix this stuff except in a class...

Its a little depressing, I definately see the holes in our training very clearly...


I don't remember what Ruby wore in her class, but the test was on her flat collar (her leather one actually, which the evaluator said was "too intimidating" :rolleyes2: )

Start putting his prong on an hour before you do any training, and leave the flat on as well. You've got to get him away from being 'collar smart'. A lot of this you can do on your own, but yes, a class might help.

I don't always do an hour before, but I make sure that there is no predictable chain of events that he can see. And its usually within 15-20 minutes of our walk, sometimes I little longer

He is responding very nicely, and hes actually started looking at me on his own...

I dont know if I can help but we just took the test this past weekend. Actually Maryellen was the evaluator. The things I worked on for some time was- not jumping up when greeted (on lead)was the toughest to work. Jumping on people to greet in our home well thats another story. Loose leash walking on a flat collar and ignoring other dogs when out for walks.

I found out later that when you have disabilities that pretain to you holding your dog that causes pain, etc., the trainer is suppost to allow for that and take consideration. My trainer didn't, but all went well and Shasta received her certificate from the CKC.
I don't know if any of you remember that I was also trying to get my 'resticted' bullie certified as my Service/PSD Dog. I didn't know then the the CGN (CGC) was one of the requirements for a SD, so we were a little a head of our game.
Well, Shasta is now a Certified Service/PSD Dog even though she must wear her muzzle in public. The only problem is she can't 'Alert and Respond' to my problems that require her mouth in public, but I'm fighting that as well as the ban and the BSL of all dogs.
If I can do it, you ALL can do it!!! :D Keep practicing with the CGC as that leads to bigger and better thing. Believe me...I KNOW!
Good luck to ALL!

Thanks! I never thought I was EVER going to get a restricted dog certified as my service dog in Ontario. but once I found out the process, breed never came into it.
The CGN training was the most helpful as it's pretty much the same as the Temperment testing and the only difference was how she was around wheel chairs, walkers, etc. I've banged into her a few times with the grocery carts and it didn't even fizz her. She just walks closer beside me instead of the cart. LOL
