CGC Preparation


For dogs who have successfully completed Advanced Home Obedience. Class continues to practice basic exercises in preparation for the CGC test, plus off-leash control, drop on recall & stays out of sight. Graduates of this class will be prepared to take the AKC Canine Good Citizen test, which is open to all breeds, regardless of pedigree.

The AKC CGC title is the basis for therapy dog training and certification. This class will also introduce dogs to walkers, wheel chairs and training situations that might be encountered as part of therapy work. Handlers will receive detailed information on the rewarding volunteer opportunities for certified therapy dogs.

Please bring your dog & current training equipment the first week.

If you’re interested in a CGC Prep class and we don’t have any available classes on the schedule, please fill out the wait list.
