Canine Good Citizen Preparation and Test

Prepare for and Take the AKC test to officially make your dog a canine good citizen

This Canine Good Citizen Prep class takes your dog’s training to a higher level. Students will work through bigger distractions, increase clarity of cues and learn advanced behaviors including the skills required for the Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Test. All students will have the option of taking the CGC test on the last day of class.

Topics include: greeting a friendly stranger and sitting politely for petting, walking through a crowd on a loose leash, reliable off-leash coming when called, reliable response to sit, down and stay at a distance.

Please note: because we will be working off leash some of the time, dogs will occasionally come face-to-face. We can put up barriers for small or shy dogs to get the space they need from other dogs. This class is not a good match for dogs with aggression issues.

Prerequisites: It is required that your dog has taken at least one of the following classes:
