Beginner training is aimed at training you to train your dog. Emphasis is on the training needed to make the dog a good companion: walk on a loose leash, sit, stand, down, stay and come when called.
You must pass Beginner in order to advance to CGC, Intermediate or Performance Readiness. The test includes a 30 second sit (on leash), a 30 second down (on leash), and controlled walking on a LOOSE leash. The dog must not show aggression towards other dogs or towards people.
