6-Week Canine Good Citizen Class = $350

The Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Program was designed in 1989 by the American Kennel Club (AKC) to encourage dog owners to teach their dogs good manners and promote responsible pet ownership. It involves training your dog to be well-behaved and calm in any situation. To see a list of requirements for this test go here: CGC Test Requirements. We administer the Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Test as a part of our 6-week class and the test will be conducted on week 6. If your dog passes the test, you will receive an application to submit to receive a CGC certificate from the AKC and earn the right to have the title/designation “CGC” listed after their name. Dogs do not have to be registered with the AKC to earn a CGC, nor do they have to be purebred or, in fact, registered with any canine organization. Many people use the Canine Good Citizen training to start preparing their dogs for pet therapy, dog sports or any other type of advanced obedience training. In addition to the CGC test we also offer testing for the Community Canine (CGCA) certification and can also administer that test on week 6 of this class. The requirements for the CGCA test can be found here: CGCA Test Requirements.
