Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog

If getting your dog certified as an AKC Canine Good Citizen, we can help train for the requirements that are part of the CGC Evaluation.  This is great preparation if you are thinking about training your dog as a therapy dog.

  • Accepting A Friendly Stranger
  • Sitting Politely for Petting
  • Appearance and Grooming
  • Out for a Walk (walking on a loose lead)
  • Walking Through a Crowd
  • Sit and Down on Command and Staying in Place
  • Coming When Called
  • Reaction to Another Dog
  • Reaction to Distraction
  • Supervised Separation

Your dog must have solid basic skills for this training including sit, down, stay, leave it, loose leash walking.  You will be asked to provide proof of successful previous basic training either privately or in a group setting.  If your dog does not have these skills, please register for Basic Obedience training first.
