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® (AKC)Canine Good 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. Click here for details on what is taught in the class and included on the CGC certification examination.

Head trainers bring decades of experience to the class. Assistant and apprentice trainers provide lots of one-on-one attention.
