A Description taken from the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen website:
“Started in 1989, the CGC Program is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. The Canine Good Citizen Program is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs who pass the 10-step CGC test may receive a certificate from the American Kennel”
“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”.
Each week we will discuss and work through exercises to help you and your dog gain specific skills to aid in becoming a Canine Good Citizen. For the last class we will offer the Canine Good Citizen Test.
The class runs for 6 weeks, the cost is $222 and includes the test which takes place on the 6th week.
