Canine Good Citizen

Our CGC training is to help owners and their dogs prepare for the AKC CGC certification.

This class is designed to teach your dog good behavior when in public, to have confidence in hectic and noisy settings, to be able to greet people politely, and to stay with someone else while you walk away.

Started in 1989, The American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizen® (CGC) Program is a certification program that is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. The CGC 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.

From time to time Joseph’s Obedience Training hosts evaluations for this certification.
