AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC)

CGC-logo

This class meets for 7 weeks including the evaluation. Each class meeting is 55 minutes in length. At the end of 6 weeks there will be an evaluation free to all class participants. Successful completion of an evaluation is needed for CGC title.

It is recommended for dogs and handlers to have taken a beginning obedience class or have similar prior training.

Our instructors use positive reinforcement training techniques. Canine Good Citizen is a certification program developed by the AKC that is designed to reward the owners of dogs who are well mannered both at home and in the community. BKC instructors will provide training and help you prepare for the 10 test items you and your dog must pass to get your AKC CGC certificate and title. These test items include:

Accepting a friendly stranger
Sitting politely for petting
Appearance and grooming
Walking on a loose lead
Walking through a crowd
Sitting and laying down on command including staying in place on command
Coming when called
Reaction to another dog
Reaction to a distraction
Supervised separation
