Russell is going for his Canine Good Citizen today. He should be fine on all points except the being left with a stranger but we've worked on that all week

Best of luck to you and Russell today!! My tip would be to keep your mindset uber confident, don't even let the thought creep into your mind that he might dissolve into barking or whining when you have to leave him briefly with the evaluator. I am CONVINCED poodles have telepathic powers and can read our thoughts. When Chagall took his CGC test I had the same concern as to how well he'd do left with a stranger, in the middle of the busy Country Fair where the test was administered, dogs, kids, people hawking snacks and commotion everywhere. I held my breath the whole time (hehe, it was maybe three minutes) I was away from him. And the little nugget didn't even break his sit when I returned!! Go, Russell!!

Good luck, don't forget to tell us how you do! Remember too that this is the first step in a lifetime of doing stuff with him and for him in terms of "tests." Think about rally, obedience or agility after you cross this hurdle.

It was a minor disaster in my opinion! He passed, barely I think! I didn't even think about it when I chose the venue, but there was also a Herding Instinct Test going on in the same arena. All the owners of the Border collies and Briards were amazed at his herding instinct, and he wasn't even getting tested for that!!!He crouched and watched the sheep every chance he got, could care less about me or the many dogs wandering around. I must have had 15 people, including the tester, come up to me and say that I needed to get him involved in herding. There was a Lab, PitBull, Ridgeback and a BC X also getting CGC tested and none of them looked twice at the sheep or were interested at all what was going on in the sheep pen. The pittie lunged at Russell at one point and Russell didn't even acknowledge the dog!
What I have learned for the next time I get a dog tested .... try and get a quieter venue. No or !!!
