Canine Good Citizen Training March 24th

ImageIt’s Canine Good Citizen Certification Time!

We offer this class two times a year, and if you have every wanted to work with your dog in a therapy environment this is your class! Class will begin Saturday March 24th here at the Pet Palace at 1:00pm and last for an hour. This class usually lasts 6-8 weeks with testing included! Not sure what CGC is all about, read on!

Started in 1989, the CGC Program 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 focuses on 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.

Many dog owners choose Canine Good Citizen training as the first step in training their dogs. The Canine Good Citizen Program lays the foundation for other activities such as obedience, agility, tracking, and performance events. Training will enhance the bond between you and your dog. Dogs who have a solid obedience education are a joy to live with-they respond well to household routines, have good manners in the presence of people and other dogs, and they fully enjoy the company of the owner who took the time to provide training, intellectual stimulation, and a high quality life.

Police and animal control agencies use CGC for dealing with dog problems in communities, some therapy dog groups use the CGC as a partial screening tool, and some 4-H groups around the country have been using the CGC as a beginning dog training program for children.

Classes will be offered every Saturday @ 1:00pm beginning March 5, 2011, and will last 6-8 weeks.

All dogs are welcome to participate in the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen® (CGC) Program. Dogs must be old enough to have received necessary immunizations such as rabies vaccines. There is no age limit for the CGC test. A dog is never too old to be a good citizen. Puppies who have completed all immunizations, boosters and a basic training class may be tested as well.

Cost is $235.00 and includes training and Certification.

Please sign up via email at, or speak to any of our Representatives. Payment must be made in full by March 24, 2011.
