Canine Good Citizen

Brooklyn | 9:00 AM | 4 Weeks

Take your training to the next level. The more well behaved your dog is the more places you can take them. CGC is a building block to therapy work and dog sports. When the co-op board or landlord asks to meet your dog you will be proud to show them off. Impress your new landlord or co-op board by telling them your dog is an AKC Canine Good Citizen! Dogs must have completed a basic obedience class. This class is designed to polish up their current skills and work specifically on the 10 exercises given in the test. The CGC test will be given on week 4.
