Canine Good Citizen - Starting 10/14/23 at 11:30 AM

Help your dog become a valued community member!

The American Kennel Club (AKC) created the Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certification program to reward responsible ownership and canine good manners in the home and in the community. Our six-week class works specifically on teaching you and your canine companion how to have a wonderful relationship and how to present yourselves well in the community.

Things to know before registering:

1. Your dog must be up-to-date on his vaccinations by the first day of class.

2. Intermediate Manners and Obedience class (or equivalent) is a prerequisite to taking Canine Good Citizen Prep Class.

3. Dogs must be able to work with a flat collar or harness. (No choke/prong collars).

4. Class will run for 6 weekly sessions, meeting on the same day and time of the week. This class starts on Saturday, October 14th from 11:30am - 12:20pm. 

5. On graduation day, you and your dog will have the opportunity to take the Canine Good Citizen test. All dogs who pass the 10-step CGC test qualify to receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club.

6. If you'd like, read more about the class details.
