Canine Good Citizen / College Level
Instructed by Bill Grant, Ultimate Companion Dog Training
This class combines both the Canine Good Citizen information described below, as well as a continuation of some more advanced skills learned in the High School Class – LOADS of fun, PLUS a certificate from the American Kennel Club for your Canine Good Citizen!
Canine Good Citizen® is one of the most rapidly growing programs in the American Kennel Club. Started in 1989, this certification program is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. The CGC program stresses responsible pet ownership and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs who pass the 10-step CGC test receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club. Many dog owners choose CGC training as the first step in training their dogs.
The Canine Good Citizen program lays the foundation for other activities such as obedience, agility, tracking, and performance events. As you work with your dog to teach these skills, you’ll discover the many benefits and joys of training your dog. Training will enhance the bond between you and your dog. Dogs who have a solid obedience education are a joy to live with-they respond well to household routines, have good manners in the presence of people and other dogs, and they fully enjoy the company of the owner who took the time to provide training, intellectual stimulation, and a high quality life.
We sincerely hope that CGC will be only a beginning for you and your dog and that after passing the CGC test, you’ll continue training in obedience, agility, tracking, or performance events. This is a program that can help us assure that the dogs we love will always be welcomed and well-respected members of our communities.
Duration: 6 weeks
