Canine Good Citizen

Canine Good Citizen is another program that we offer through the AKC. Pamela is a certified CGC Instructor and Evaluator.  We refer to this course as our "Beginners Plus" class. The CGC program is designed to teach responsible dog ownership to owners and certify dogs that have the training and behaviors needed to be reliable, well-behaved members of their families and communities. These classes meet for one hour once a week for eight weeks. On the eighth week of training your dog will be evaluated by the CGC instructor. You must take the evaluation without using any treats so a large portion of what we work on is learning how to fade the use of treats! If you have an older dog that does not have basic obedience skills, we encourage you to take our Beginner course first. Please contact us if you would like more information.
