CGC Prep & Test Class

This is a 4-Week Preparation Class & Test for the AKC Canine Good Citizen

More info on AKC's CGC Program

This class is an advanced level obedience program. Your dog should have taken basic and have a good mastery of the skills. We will cover all of the test sections and prepare you and your dog for passing the certification.

All dogs, including both purebred and mixed breed dogs are welcome to participate in the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Program. Dogs must be old enough to have received necessary immunizations such as rabies vaccines. Owners will sign the Responsible Dog Owners Pledge attesting to having the dog under the routine care of a veterinarian who will work with the owner to determine an appropriate plan and schedule for vaccines and other health care procedures.

There is no age limit for the CGC test. A dog is never too old to be a good citizen. Puppies who have completed all immunizations and boosters may be tested, however, because we know that behavior and temperament can change over time, when puppies pass the CGC test, owners should have them re-tested as adults.

What we will cover:

  • Sit & Stay at a distance
  • Walking on a Loose Leash
  • Coming when Called Reliably
  • Polite Greetings
  • Simple Dog Greetings
  • Handling and Distractions
  • No Jumping Up on People
  • and much more

Is your dog ready? Your dog should have basic knowledge of the above skills and just need some fine-tuning. If you don't know if your dog is ready email us and we can discuss it further.




Enrollment is only available if the class is offered on the SCHEDULE.
