Objectives: This class strengthens the dog-owner bond by increasing communication skill and practicing the behaviors required to pass the AKC's 10-step CGC test (given on the last week of class). The American Kennel Club's Canine Good Citizen program is open to all dogs regardless of breed (or mix) and is designed to educate and reward dogs to have good manners at home and in the community.

This is an intermediate level class. There are four weeks of practice on the CGC test elements with the test given on week five. Your dog should be very prepared and almost ready to test before attending the class.

  • walk on a loose leash
  • calmly greet a person
  • calmly pass by another dog
