Thank you for your interest in our CFBC Angel Paws Pet Therapy Ministry. We would love for you and your furry friend to join us. However, there are a few things to think about before you begin the process of becoming a part of our ministry.


Some of the things to consider are:

CGC Test Requirements

  1. Accepting a friendly stranger:
    Evaluator approaches, shakes hands with handler. Does not touch dog.
  2. Sitting politely for petting:
    Evaluator pets dog, dog must show no shyness or resentment.
  3. Appearance and grooming:
    Evaluator inspects dog, combs or brushed lightly, examines ears and each front foot.
  4. Out for a walk:
    Handler takes dog for a short walk including right turn, left turn, about turn and stop.
  5. Walking through a crowd:
    Dog and handler walk close to several people; dog may show casual interest but not jump up.
  6. Sit and down on command/staying in place:
    Handler shows dog can do a sit and down, then chooses a position, leaves dog and goes to the end of a 20 ft line and return immediately.
  7. Coming when called:
    With dog still on 20 ft line from test 6, handler walks out 10 ft and calls the dog.
  8. Reaction to another dog:
    Two handlers and dogs’ approach, shake hands, exchange pleasantries, move on. Dogs can show casual interest.
  9. Reaction to distractions:
    Distractions are presented; dog may not panic or show aggression.
  10. Supervised separation:
    Handler goes out of sight for 3 minutes. Dog is held on a 6 ft leash by an evaluator.
  11. NOTE: No dog treats can be used during the CGC Testing.
