AKC Canine Good Citizen Test

Well Boom and I have a new goal! I just found out about the AKC Canine Good Citizen Test.
You train, [if need be, and Boom needs a bit more self control] and then go to be tested and you get a certificate and a patch! Whooo-Hooo!

This is a recognized test, in that some places you cannot take your pup unless they have this certificate (certain parks, motels, etc). Some places want this certificate before they will rent to you (we do not have this problem here).

I like the idea of having goals to work towards. And I also believe that if we are going to be in public, then she needs to be well behaved. The other day I had some customers here to look at some ewes that I need to sell and Boom saw the little boy and proceeded to jump over the gate to see the boy instead of listening to me and helping guard my back *rolls eyes* and Rocky [one of my ewes] nearly got away. THEN she proceeded to knock this little boy down because she was so excited to see him and wanted to shower him with kisses. SO we do need some work. We will start from here and work forward.

I usually like to have a picture with my posts.... I am working on it....
