Canine Good Citizen Dog Obedience Classes
The goals of the
course are to teach responsible dog ownership to owners and provide
basic training and good manners to dogs so that they become well-behaved
companions at home and in the community. You and your dog will have a
terrific time, too!
If your dog is older
than six months, the
American Kennel Club® (AKC) Canine Good Citizen Dog
Obedience classes are for you and your dog.
Upon completion of
the class, your pet will be evaluated for the
American Kennel Club®
Citizenship (CGC) program. We encourage everyone to take the test at the end
of the course and if you and your dog do not pass, you are welcome and
encouraged to continue training and attend any future test at no charge.
