Preparation for Canine Good Citizenship
4 Week Class beginning Wednesday, August 2 from 6 - 7 pm Cost: $65.00
AKC’s Canine Good Citizen® (CGC) Program is a great foundation for
other canine activities such as obedience, agility,service and therapy
dog work. In this class, dogs and handlers will practice exercises to
prepare them for the CGC test, including heeling nicely on leash, coming
when called, working around other dogs, and greeting strangers
politely. For dogs and handlers who have completed the basic class or
equivalent and want to take it to the next level! Previous class experience/permission of instructor required.
In the beginning level classes, we'll use neat games,
toys and food treats to teach your puppy or dog the behaviors you want. You'll learn the best way to communicate with your individual dog and how to deliver rewards with good placement and timing for maximum learning impact. We'll also talk about how to "read" dog body language, stop unwanted behaviors and how to recognize and promote healthy play between dogs.
Puppy classes are for pups 12 weeks to 5 months of age.*
Adolescent & Adult classes are for dogs 5 months and older*
* Please Note: Ages approximate. Small breed dogs
may do best in the puppy section; large breed pups in the older dog
section; any questions about which is best for your dog, please call!
