8pm: AKC Canine Good Citizen 7 wk class

Get ready to take The AKC CGC test with this 7 week class.

If this is your first class that you will be taking with your dog then it is highly recommend you start with the AKC STAR Puppy class if your dog is under 10 months or The Basic Training Class if your dog is over 10 months.

This class teaches the 10 skills needed to pass the CGC test.. It is open to all dogs – purebred and mixed breeds. Having a CGC may be an advantage when renting a residence or obtaining homeowner insurance. It may be required prior to registering as a therapy dog. The class is taught by an AKC CGC evaluator. 

Canine Good Citizen test is a nationally recognized program that instills a sense of responsibility and good manners in dogs and owners alike. The heart of the CGC program is the 10-step CGC test. CGC The test consists of the following practical exercises:

1. Accepting a friendly stranger

2. Sitting politely for petting

3. Appearance and grooming

4. Walking on a loose leash

5. Walking through a crowd

6. Sit and down on command and staying in place

7. Coming when called

8. Reaction to another dog
