A Few Final Thoughts
Keep in mind that the reason for taking this evaluation is to push yourself to help your dog be a better behaved, more enjoyable family companion. As you and your dog work together, you will discover a bond developing that will lead to a better relationship. The CGC accomplishment is often the first step to a wonderful relationship with your dog and to many fun dog activities. Good luck! :)
Keep the AKC's words in mind:
If you and your dog do not pass, it is not a failure but an indication of where you and your dog need more work.
