CGC Preparation

Our Canine Good Citizen class is open to dogs who have successfully completed Advanced Home Obedience. Class continues to practice basic exercises in preparation for the CGC evaluation. Graduates of this class will be prepared to take the AKC Canine Good Citizen test, which is open to all breeds.

The AKC CGC title is the basis for therapy dog training and certification. This class will also introduce dogs to walkers, wheelchairs and training situations that might be encountered as part of therapy work. 

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