CGC Exam at Sir Francis Drake Kennel Club's Trial, September 15, 2012

A Canine Good Citizen (CGC) exam was run by the Napa Valley Dog Training Club during the Sir Francis Drake Kennel Club's trial at the Solano Fairgrounds.

Mary Ash and Cola were one of the "friendly dog" teams, along with Karen Jackson and Maddi, while Cristina Martin was our Admin Lady, and Diana Martin, Karen and Lori Jackson provided our crowd. Examiners on hand were Steve Ward and myself, Jim Spiva, who examined 20 very nice dogs, of whom 15 passed with flying colors.

The weather was perfect, the dogs were really great, the support from Sir Francis Drake's crew was outstanding.....and we all had a great day.

From NVDTC, Nick Mattera and his Rhodesian Ridgeback, Bikari passed, as did Teresa Russell and her Yellow Lab Perry.

Net income to NVDTC for the two days work was $305. A big thank you to all who helped.
