This is a 6-week class for dogs over 6-months of age. While not required, it is suggested your dog has attended a at least an Intermediate level class before attending, as this is considered an Advanced level class.
All dogs must be up-to-date and show proof of vaccines and/or titers including Rabies if you are attending class at our facility.
The Canine Good Citizen Test is something I strive to achieve with all of my own dogs. It is a combination of obedience commands and good public manners. Many therapy organizations require this test because it shows that the dog is just what it says… A Good Citizen! There are lots of perks to becoming a Canine Good Citizen. A lot of dogs on the “bad breed list” seek out this title so they are excepted through different homeowner’s insurance companies!
Any breed or breed mix may take the Canine Good Citizen test, however, if they are an AKC dog they can earn this as a title after their name! Our 6-week course works on each of the 10 parts of this test and then we will have set dates throughout the year for taking the actual test. Some sections included are Sitting Politely For Petting, Walking Through A Crowd, Supervised Separation, Appearance & Grooming and more.
For a detailed description of the test in its entirety, check out AKC’s website.

***For our Virtual Training Class Attendees:
You will be right in the training ring with us virtually for about an hour each week (they are 6 weeks long), learning along others doing the same thing you are, but from the comfort of your own home! You can chime in, ask questions and will get all the necessary handouts and training information just as if you were in attendance to one of our regular live group classes. And don’t worry, if you are having technical difficulties and can’t seem to connect one day, we will be able to get you all the information and homework from your sessions so you never miss out!
All you need is a computer with a webcam or a smartphone and to download the Skype app from your Google Play or Apple Store. It is also helpful to have an easy way to set up your phone or tablet, such as a stand or tripod so it is easy for your trainer to view your training with your dog.
**PLEASE NOTE: Be sure to enroll in any of our virtual training classes at least 24 hours before the actual start date, so we can verify we have your correct information ready to contact you when our live session is going to begin.
