Just curious about if any of you have gone through the CGC test with your Vizsla's? Is it difficult? I thought maybe something to possibly look into for our puppy (Axel) in the near future, maybe something challenging and rewarding?
I did the CGC with my Golden Retriever and it was a breeze. We just had to sit, down and stay in those positions. Meeting a stranger without getting too excited. You can only do the test with a flat collar or martin gale. We know that we are not doing that with our puppy. He is too hyper for the job, we are going to get him into a sport instead.
Reba earned her CGC certificate at a little over a year old. By that time she had been thru a puppy class, and a couple of intro obedience classes. The only reason that I waited so long to take the test is that she didn't walk well on a loose lead, everything else was a breeze.
Look into the AKC STAR Puppy program--gives you a great foundation for CGC and an all around well socialized pup.
Thanks for the information, I was curious as to what age they would take the test, Axel starts his 6 week puppy class next week, and then most likely some other obedience classes as well. I will check into the AKC Star program. Thanks
