Canine Good Citizen
The CGC Program teaches good manners to dogs and responsible dog ownership to their owners. The 10-step Canine Good Citizen test is a non-competitive test for all dogs, including purebreds and mixed breeds. The CGC award is the prerequisite for many Therapy Dog groups. Some homeowners's insurance companies are encouraging CGC testing and an increasing number of apartments and condos require that resident dogs pass the CGC test. This class will focus on the requirements for passing the AKC Canine Good Citizen test (CGC) 6 wks $150. Camden
AKC Community Canine
AKC Community Canine is the third and most advanced level of the Canine Good Citizen Program. The goal of AKC Community Canine is to test the dog’s skills in a natural setting. For example, rather than the dog being tested in a ring, in AKC Community Canine, the “walks through a crowd” test item will involve the dog walking through a real crowd on a busy sidewalk, at a training club or in a local park. This is a six week class. $150. Classes are held in different locations each week. Camden, Rockport, Rockland & Thomaston.
