The training club that I belong to had a CGC test tonight for the basic obedience class (or anyone who wanted to enter their dogs) after my advanced class tonight. I hung around just to watch some of it. OMG!!! They had 2 instructors, one of who was doing the sit, lay down, stay and come portions - no problem. The other gal was doing "greeting a friendly stranger" "accepting a petting" and "accepting light grooming" She sat in a chair and the dogs came up to her, jumped all over her, and she was laughing and telling them to sit and giving them commmands while the owners stood by not saying anything to their dogs or trying to get control of them! Now I must say that I'm not sure yet whether she actually passed these dogs, but it would have appeared that she did. I will find out later. But the fact that she was sitting in a chair was wrong from the start. The rules for each item are clearly stated, and that wasn't it. I actually had to leave because I couldn't stand to watch anymore. I want to say something to somebody in the club, but unfortunately the gal in the chair is the president of the club and my instructor had a dog in the test. I haven't been a member that long and don't want to cause trouble, but this reallyh troubled me. I felt guilty that Emilu got to retry something twice in her test and she was passed - but this was much worse. Do you think I should say something and to who?
