Almost...

Kendall and I went for our Delta Society Pet Partner evaluation last Saturday morning. We passed on everything except she jumped up on people a few times. That's a no-no and something we've been working on. Kendall was great with her commands and people interactions, just not the jumping up. She gets so excited to meet people.

I got some pointers on how to work on things. The hard part right now is actually meeting people she doesn't know. There's not a lot of dog things going on right now so she's not out in public all that much. When I take her to the mall with her vest on people are reluctant to pet her because they've been taught not to pet service dogs.

We're scheduled to retest in April. Looks like we have a lot of work to do before then.

So close...

Go Gretchen and Kendall! That is awesome! Spencer unfortunately is way too in love with people and has to make sure that everyone knows he's in the room. This is why we didn't pass the CGC test. :-)

That sounds like fun! When you take her to the mall, just find families with small children and ask the parents if their kids would like to pet her. Where did you take the class? I could do the CGC program with Gus at PetSmart, but it costs a LOT to take the classes.
