Is your dog a well behaved pup? Are you considering your dog for service or therapy work? Have you ever thought about trying out your dog's skills in social settings to see if they are AKC Good Citizens? This is your prep class!  The AKC, CGC test is usually required for dogs entering into training for service or therapy work.    

We practice all the skills necessary for the AKC Canine Good Citizen test. We will go through six weeks of practice using each other as distractions to hone our dog's skills. Exercises build gradually until they replicate the behavior needed for the test.  

Although we use graduated exercises, dogs should have a foundation of basic manners before entering this class.  

The AKC CGC test is offered on the last day of class. Your testing fees are included in the class fee.   

If you feel you and your dog are ready, the test is available without the prep class.  Please click on the link below to register only for the test.
