About this Class:
The AKC canine good citizen program was developed to test a dog’s disposition as well as a dog’s skills. Preparing for the CGC is valuable for many different reasons – manners for dogs that are training to become therapy dogs, control for dogs getting ready to compete in dog sports, a goal for all pet dogs to achieve. Dogs that enroll should be friendly toward other dogs and people. Prerequisite: Basic Manners, Adolescent, or Puppy Kindergarten at Your Dog’s Friend or instructor’s permission. Most dogs that have trained with other positive trainers should be fine for class.
CGC Prep will generally be followed by a CGC test, scheduled shortly after the class ends. To learn more about the Canine Good Citizen Certificate, please visit the AKC website.
Dogs that enroll must be friendly toward people and accept being around other dogs.
- Lisa Arant (Small & Tall Dog Training)
