This test demonstrates the dog permits an amicable stranger to approach and talk to the handler in a natural, everyday situation.

The evaluator approaches the dog and handler and greets the handler in a pleasant demeanour, ignoring the dog.

The evaluator and handler shake hands and exchange pleasantries. The dog must show no sign of acrimony, aggression, or bashfulness. The dog may not break position, jump on the evaluator, or try and go to the evaluator.

If the handler has to hold the dog to govern it, the dog fails the exercise.

Test two : Sitting kindly for petting

This test demonstrates the dog permits a genial stranger to touch him while he’s out with the owner / handler. With the dog sat at the handler’s side ( either side is allowable ) across the exercise, the evaluator pets the dog on the head and body only. After petting, the evaluator then circles the dog and handler, finishing the test.

The dog mustn’t show bashfulness or antagonism. The dog may stand while being petted, but must not struggle or pull away to circumvent the petting, and should not plunge at or jump on the evaluator.

Test three : Appearance and grooming This test demonstrates the dog welcomes being groomed and examined and authorizes a stranger ,eg a vet, groomer, or buddy of the owner, to do so. It also demonstrates the owner’s care, concern, and responsibility.

For the appearance and grooming test, ensure Tommy looks his best. If he requires a bath before the test, give him one.

The evaluator inspects the dog to establish if he’s clean and groomed. The dog must seem to be in healthy condition – correct weight, clean, healthy, and alert.

Bring the brush or brush you frequently use on the dog. The evaluator simply brushs or brushes the dog and, in a natural demeanour, gently inspects the ears and gradually picks up each front foot.

The dog doesn’t need to hold a particular position in the exam, and the handler may talk to the dog, praise, and give support throughout.A dog that needs restraining in this exam fails the test.

Test four : Out for a stroll – walking on a loose leash The 4th test demonstrates the handler is in control. The dog could be on both sides of the handler, whichever the handler likes.

The dog’s position should leave little doubt that the dog is alert to the handler and is replying to the handler’s movements and changes of direction. The dog needn’t be completely aligned with the handler and needn’t sit when the handler stops.

An occasional tight leash is allowable, but repeated straining or pulling on the leash is unsuitable. Likewise , unjustifiable sniffing of the floor or ground, suggesting that the dog isn’t attentive to the handler, is also unsuitable.

In this test, you should make a left turn, a right turn, and an about-turn, with 1 stop between and another at the end.

The handler may talk to the dog along the path to praise or command him in an ordinary tone of voice. The handler could also sit the dog at the halt, if required.

Test five : Walking thru a gang This test demonstrates the dog can move about kindly in pedestrian traffic and is in hand in public. The test is a great motivation to coach Tommy around diversions.

The dog and handler walk around and closely pass a couple of folks ( at least 3 ). The dog may show some interest in the strangers but must continue to walk with the handler, without proof of overexuberance, bashfulness, or acrimony.

The handler may talk to the dog and inspire or praise the dog through the test. The dog should not strain at the leash, jump on folks in the bunch, or try and hide behind his handler.
