Our Foundation Program includes preparation for the Canine Good Citizen test. Upon successful completion of this Level 3 class, you will be ready to enroll in the following classes: Real World Manners/CGC Advanced-Community Canine and Therapy Dog Preparation.

Real World Manners/CGC Advanced-Community Canine

6 Sessions / $185

Apply your dog’s basic good manners to everyday public encounters. This class will teach you how to have control and connection with your dog, no matter who or what comes his way. He will learn to meet (or ignore) new people and other dogs, walk politely past enticing toys and treats, and wait calmly while you engage in conversation. You will develop the skills necessary to pass the third and most advanced level of the AKC Canine Good Citizen Program called AKC Community Canine™, where dogs earn the CGCA (Advanced CGC) title. These skills exemplify a dog who is a well behaved and welcome member of the dog loving community.

This class will prepare you and your dog for the exercises required to become a certified therapy dog team. We will support your dog’s ability to develop a comfortable relationship with the people he visits. This includes a willingness to be pet, cuddled and touched, leaving dropped food items, and getting dogs accustomed to medical equipment like crutches or wheelchairs. With a therapy dog certification, you and your dog will be able to make visits to nursing homes, hospitals, libraries, and schools to spread unconditional love to people in need.
