Canine Good Citizen & Therapy Classes
6 Week Class
Canine Good Citizen Class: This class will focus on the 10 requirements for passing the AKC Canine Good Citizen test (CGC). The CGC test was designed to help pet owners feel confident that their dog is trained well enough to enjoy accompanying them out in public. The CGC has also become a standard first step for handlers wishing to train their dogs for therapy work. A CGC dog is more likely to be welcomed into rental properties, places of employment, and other pet dog friendly businesses. CGC teams are ambassadors for the canine community assuring that our beloved pets will continue to be allowed to accompany us throughout our communities.
