Canine Good Citizen Training & Testing

The AKC’s Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program is often seen as the gold standard of behavior for dogs in our communities. The CGC program offers many practical advantages such as: it is a prerequisite for therapy dog training, some homeowner’s insurance companies encourage CGC testing, and an increasing number of apartments and condos require that resident dogs pass the CGC test. Upon completion of our 6-week program, your dog will take the CGC exam. All passing dogs will receive a ribbon and have the option of sending in their form to the AKC to earn an official title. Titles are displayed after a dog’s name and mark achievements. 

Price: $300.00 for 6 sessions and the test
