Canine Good Citizen


Yep. Petey earned his Canine Good Citizen certificate. Thanks to Courtney and Holly from Pup Scouts and the good people at Treat 'Em Right Rescue, after two rounds of basic obedience (Behave-A-Bulls), he passed the test. No one was more surprised that I was and we never could have done it without all of Courtney's help and patience. (And the patience of all of our classmates.) We still have a lot of work to do, but a year ago it took two hands, a prong collar and all my strength to walk Petey down the street when another dog was around, now, we've ditched the prong collar and can even walk a few feet at a time on a loose leash in a heel.

I just need to mail in his paperwork to the American Kennel Club and he'll be official

Is that stuffing from a toy hanging from his teeth?
