Imagine how proud your dog (and you) would be to receive his or her Canine Good Citizen Certificate! This 6 week course helps to prepare your dog to sit the 10 Step AKC Canine Good Citizen exam. Work with your dog up to 30 feet away using a long-line, lengthen stays and increase the level of distraction. You will also learn 5 new behaviors to teach your dog and get an introduction to agility and off-leash training. Upon passing the 10 step program, established by the American Kennel Club, you will receive a certificate approving your dog as a well mannered pet at home an in the community. CGC has a number of legal benefits as well! Note: Not all dogs will pass. Each dog will be evaluated individually in the group by the instructor on their abilities to perform the required behaviors.
