Urban Canine Good Citizen (CGCU) Prep

Prepare for the CGCU test

You and your dog passed the CGC! Now take your skills to the next level. The AKC Urban Canine Good Citizen (CGCU) program requires dogs to demonstrate CGC skills in a more urban setting that includes traffic, crowds, noises, smells, and other distractions. Have fun working with your dog, whether you plan to take the CGCU test, or just want to practice your skills in a more challenging outdoor setting. This class will meet in different locations in the Rockville area.

Urban CGC Prep will be followed by an Urban CGC test, scheduled shortly after the class ends. To learn more about the Urban Canine Good Citizen Certificate, visit the AKC website.

Prerequisites: None, but you must have a CGC title on record with the AKC to take the test.
