Phoebe worked hard in class, she's such a little smarty-pants! Oops, we had a bit of trouble getting her graduation hat to stay on straight, LOL!
The best part is that following the class, she also passed her Canine Good Citizen (CGC) evaluation! We've sent off the paperwork to the AKC (American Kennel Club) and her AKC CGC certificate should arrive in a few weeks.
Getting her CGC means a lot to me. When we first adopted Phoebe, she had some serious fear issues. She was utterly terrified of men! I didn't find that out until I brought her home from the shelter.
My husband and I worked with her for many months to help her get over those fears. She's come such a long way since then.
I always hoped Phoebe might be able to become a Pet Partners THERAPY DOG like her sister Icy. Getting her CGC is the first step in preparing to be a therapy dog. She's got some additional training to do before being evaluated for therapy dog work, but I think she can do it!
