This is a 3 week prep course followed by the test on the 4th week. The purpose of the Canine Good Citizen program is to ensure that our favorite companion, the dog, can be a respected member of the community because it is trained to act mannerly in the home, in public places and in the presence of other dogs. This preparation course welcomes both pure-bred and mix breed dogs. The test is non-competitive and all dogs who pass all 10 items will receive a certificate (that you must submit) from the American Kennel Club. As students of the Canine Sports Center all that pass will receive our CGC patch offered by the AKC as well as our Canine Sports Center signature bandanas for those that do not have one already. Order forms will be available for those wishing to purchase additional CGC items from the AKC.
Those only doing the test will be able to purchase a CGC patch for an additional fee upon passing. Order forms will be available if you wish to purchase additional CGC items from the AKC.
*Pre-requisite: Completion of CSC’s Basic Beginner Obedience 101 (or equivalent). Completion of CSC’s Advance Beginner Obedience 201 (or equivalent) is highly recommended.
This is not a basic obedience skills course and this should be taken into consideration when enrolling. Please bring a brush your dog is familiar with to the class sessions and test.
