Advanced Obedience/ CGC Class

The AKC’s Canine Good Citizen program is the gold standard of behavior for dogs in our communities. This class will prepare your dog for everyday situations and proper etiquette in the home as well as in public. This course is focused on enhancing the dog/handler team and creating a dog that is in control and confident in any environment. Dogs with solid obedience preparation are more fun to live with and better behaved around people and other dogs. The Canine Good Citizen certification can also be helpful when renting an apartment or condo and may even save you some money on your homeowner’s insurance.

This class is for dogs one year of age and up and a continuation of our Basic Obedience Class. We will be adding more challenge and difficulty level to obedience behaviors.

Not sure if your dog is ready for advanced obedience, we are happy to set up an evaluation visit.
