Your dog will develop better manners in the face of distractions. Solid sits & down stays, reliable recalls, polite greetings, and walking without pulling, no matter what is going on around you. Family members are encouraged to attend too.
Dogs that pass the CGC test are deemed to be reliable family and community members and will receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club (includes mix breeds).
If you are wanting to train for Therapy Dog Certification, this course is your first step and the CGC test must be passed to move to the next training step.
