Pray that I pass the CGC Exam tonight

Hello Folks. Please pray that Mercy and I pass the Canine Good Citizen test tonight. I have taken off work one hour early for the last two days for practice and plan to take two hours off today. Pray also that it doesn't rain too much.

You guys will do fine! Suck on a mint if your nervous so that Mercy doesn't pick up on any test jitters. It's great to see you set goals and then watching the journey as you achieve them--Mercy is a lucky little girl.

Good luck to you. I'm sure you'll do fine, but it's not a do or die situation. Relax.

I am sure you will do fine. And if not, there are more opportunities. Stay calm and enjoy it, because the test actually is quite fun.

Banker trained in a location that offered continuing classes until your dog passed the CGC, as long as you were obviously working on it. I told the instructor that I was planning on coming back for more practice, which took some pressure off me.

You will do fine. Remember it is supposed to be fun!

Relax and have fun!! My bet would be she'll do fine.

Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.

Remember to picture what you want Mercy to do....vs picturing what you are worried will happen... Ex: sit, stay... You ask mercy to stay...but you are worried that mercy will NOT stay... And that is what you have pictured in your mind!...so she does not stay!.. Try it.!
Have confidence in the work the two of you have done together, and the respect she has for you.
