Does your dog have basic manners and you are ready to take it to the next level? Check out our Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Prep class!

The AKC’s Canine Good Citizen program is the gold standard for dog behavior. In the CGC test, your dog must pass ten mini-tests including:

      • sitting politely while being petted by a friendly stranger
      • walking loose on a leash around other people
      • staying in place
      • coming when called
      • being left with a new person
This will earn you the official AKC CGC title. Is your dog ready to become a Canine Good Citizen?

This is one of our on-going classes so you can enroll and start class at any time. It is also flexible and accommodates busy schedules. Weekly attendance is not required, and there are no makeup lessons required for missed weeks. You have ten business weeks to attend your six classes. You do not need to know which six dates you will attend ahead of time. We only ask that if you are going to miss a class, you email your instructor beforehand to let them know. Students are given a chance to renew for another six weeks of fun at the end of each package, and can continue to attend in their class session as long as space is available.

We’re sorry, but this class does not cover behavior challenges such as severe on-leash reactivity (barking, growling, and/or lunging at others while on leash), excessive barking, separation anxiety, confinement distress, extreme fearfulness of people or dogs, or aggression as these cannot be covered in a group class setting. If you are experiencing this behavior, please check out our private training options. This way, we can tailor a training program to tackle your dog’s individual needs.
