Thats great! Does he have his CGC? If so, what do you have to do to get it. I want to get Zildjian CGC'd so i can this with him. He's a very gentle dog, he doesn't jump, he not rough hardly ever barks, and very well behaved.

Thanks!

A CGC actually is not enough, for a dog to do therapy work they are supposed to be certified through a therapy dog organization. The CGC test is not very difficult. Here is the test:
http://www.akc.org/events/cgc/training_testing.cfm

So yes, he has his CGC but is also a certified therapy dog.

UKC GRCH/ARBA Master CH
'PR' T's B Steel A Patch O' My Heart,
CGC, Therapy Dog, DNA-P, OFAca

Different therapy orgs have different guidelines and slightly different tests.

I have a therapy dog page up on my website if you want to take a peek. Here ya go:

ARBA is the American Rare Breed Association. We used to go to their shows several years ago.

He achieved a CH title which is like regular conformation ring showing.

Once getting a CH title the dog is eligible to try to get a Master CH title.
That title is given when four different judges, score a dog comparing it directly to each aspect of the standard. The dog has to receive a specific score from each judge in order to attain the title.

Awww Steele is such a sweet looking boy. I need to get back into taking Mikado around. He loved to go so much but time and distance has made it hard to keep up with.

Sometimes it is hard with everything else going on to make the time for it. I know what you mean!

Steel really loves it. He gets upset when the other get their turns
