    Do they have a "Rowdy Mob" category?

    Apologies for bumping an older thread, but I'm curious if there are some folks who have had their Bulldog pass the CGC.

    I took Nelson for an evaluation last month and he was able to do everything well except #8 (passing another dog without reacting).
    I'm curious as to what strategies folks used for this. He's not aggressive, just curious.

    I plan to try again or get him in a class in January, after the holidays.

    Cheers!

    Dogs are Bella's kryptonite...she wants to play! She's extremely well-socialized, but you wouln't know it.

    I seriously considered keeping chicken in my pocket and letting her know it's there (so she focuses on me), but I guess that's cheating. (Plus, it probably wouln't work when she's in the zone!)

    Really, I think the key is stopping/correcting the behavior before it starts. When the other dog is approaching, give the command ("leave it" or whatever you decide to use). Let your dog know that they are to ignore that temptation.

    It's easier said then done. Sadly, at this point, I don't think Bella is a CGC dog.

    Elmo would pass 1-7 and 10. He would not pass 6,8,9 Especially # 8, Elmo Hates other dogs, he would fight them. This is sad for us, we Love him So Much.

    3. She passes this one (YAYYY!!!)

    4. Yes!!!! (BONUS POINT!)

    5. Hahahahha... she would run like it was the end of the world! Probably hitting every object, child, vase... scared to death!

    6. Got sit and down... down may last 1 sec. Does that count?

    7. Coming when called? Hahahaha... Izzy? Izzyyyy? Isabellll? Isaaaabellllll? IIIIIIzzzzyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!

    8. She ignores mosts dogs.... like they dont exist! PASS!

    9. Dropping a chair? Come on!

    My sunshine doesn’t come from the skies,
    It comes from the love in my dog’s eyes.

    LOL! I'd pass her.

    I'm genuinely amazed by dogs who aren't phased by other dogs.

    It really is the "pass by other dogs" thing that has me concerned. It seems like an unnatural behavior for a dog.
    I can understand the intent of the guideline, but that one is a few orders of magnitude more difficult (at least for us) than any of the other requirements.

    I did start reading the "Feisty Feido" book, by Patricia Mcconnel (her books seem to be really good) and am going to try to apply some of those techniques.

    Mainly, trying to introduce a "watch" and a "turn" command. I'm not sure if that will actually help with the test though.

    Thanks for all the replies all, I'm glad to know that mine isn't the only bully that is exuberant about greeting other dogs!

    Cheers!

    Thanks!

    Yes she usually doesnt care att all! When walking dogs can be barking... crying... its like she doesnt even see them! Sometimes she does that to me too... when she wants to ignore me
