Canine Good Citizen
The Canine Good Citizen Program is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. As you work with your dog to teach the CGC skills, you’ll discover the many benefits and joys of training your dog. Training will enhance the bond between you and your dog. Dogs who have a solid obedience education are a joy to live with-they respond well to household routines, have good manners in the presence of people and other dogs, and they fully enjoy the company of the owner who took the time to provide training, intellectual stimulation, and a high quality life.
All dogs, including both purebred and mixed breed dogs are welcome to participate in the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Program. Dogs must be old enough to have received necessary immunizations such as rabies vaccines. Owners will sign the Responsible Dog Owners Pledge attesting to having the dog under the routine care of a veterinarian who will work with the owner to determine an appropriate plan and schedule for vaccines and other health care procedures. There is no age limit for the CGC test. A dog is never too old to be a good citizen.
The CGC is a great course to prepare your dog for a therapy dog evaluation. Many of the same skills required for the Therapy Dog International evaluation are taught in CGC.
Our next class starts Wednesday March 28th at 7:15 pm.
The course runs for 5 weeks – $125
