Advanced Manners/Canine Good Citizen (CGC)/Socialized Pet Obedience Test Class
This class is best for dogs who have graduated from either a Basic Manners Class or Puppy Kindergarten class. Dogs entering this class should know the basics of sit, down, controlled on-leash walking, and beginning stays.
Your dog will continue to improve its social skills around other dogs and people, it will improve its loose-leash walking, stays, recalls, crate and door manners. It will learn how to accept handling/grooming interactions and other life skills and pave the way to many types of future training.
At the completion of this class, the AKC Canine Good Citizen test or the UKC Socialized Pet Obedience Test (SPOT)) will be offered that can demonstrate these skills and can earn you and your dog a very nice certificate from AKC or UKC. Passing these tests may also help with getting homeowners insurance, getting acceptance by a landlord, and many other benefits. These tests are not required in order to graduate from this class).
If a class is full and no other class date or time meets your needs, please sign up on the wait list and you will be contacted if an opening becomes available.
