Canine Good Citizen

The AKC’s Canine Good Citizen® (CGC) Program was started in 1989 and it is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. The Canine Good Citizen Program is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs who pass the 10-step CGC test may receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club.

Therapy Dog Prep

This series is made up of 3, one-hour classes and is designed specifically for dogs that are interested in joining our certified therapy dog group, Believe in DOG Therapy. We will focus on exposing the dogs to different kinds of equipment, people, and situations (including a field trip). We will also attempt to re-create scenarios that are typical of some of our therapy visits and learn a couple of crowd pleasing tricks!

Class #1 - September 14th @ 2:45 PM - FULL
Class #2 - September 21st @ 2:45 PM - FULL
Class #3 - September 28th @ 4:15 PM (Field Trip) - FULL

The price is $40 per class, or $110 for all 3.

If you are interested in the Therapy DOG Group and your dog is under a year old, the prep classes are required. If your dog is over a year old, they are highly recommended.
