The CCGC Test takes place in a public setting with appropriate distractions. A vaccination certificate, licence, a grooming tool, a plastic bag and a leash with a buckle collar, body harness or martingale collar are required for this test. A dog straining on its lead or touching anyone with teeth or feet is unacceptable and, therefore, a failure.
