Canine Good Citizen

1 class/week, 4 weeks (Group Class)
Canine Good Citizen training is American Kennel Club (AKC) sponsored and is fun, useful, and will help you and your dog establish a closer bond.  The purpose of the Canine Good Citizen Test is to ensure that our dogs can be a respected member of the community.  Dogs become respected members of their community when they are trained to act mannerly in the home, in public, and in the presence of other dogs.

A CGC certificate is the first step towards certifying dogs that visit nursing homes, hospitals, schools, etc. With all the "dangerous dogs" legislation that is now pending in most states a CGC certificate can help verify that your dog does not fall into the "dangerous dog" category.  Many insurance companies require home owners to obtain a CGC certificate before issuing liability homeowners policies to people who own certain breeds of dogs.

All dogs, including purebreds and mixed breeds are embraced by and welcomed in the Canine Good Citizen Program.  At completion of the class a CGC test will be given by our certified CGC evaluator.  After successfully passing the test, all dogs will be eligible for AKC certification.  Passing a CGC test is also required of all dogs wishing to enroll in our doggy daycare.
