    The Canine Good Citizen class practices skills for the 10 test items you and your dog must pass to get the AKC CGC certificate, including meeting friendly people politely and accepting petting and grooming; walking nicely on a loose leash alone and through a crowd; demonstrating Sit, Down, Stay, and Come; meeting another leashed dog; remaining calm during sight and sound distractions; and being separated from handler for 3 minutes. See www.akc.org/events/cgc/training_testing.cfm for details.

    The pass/fail CGC test, given during the last day of class, is the gateway to many therapy dog programs and is accepted by some landlords and insurance companies as an indication of your dog's social skills and that you and your sidekick work well together as a team. 

    Prerequisite: Dogs must have graduated from a Basic Manners class or the equivalent with another program. Or know the four basic commands: sit, down, stay, and come.  Dogs should not be overly shy, jump on people, or pull excessively on leash.  Dogs cannot be aggressive towards people or other dogs.  

    Class session: Six weeks, Friday, 5:30pm-6:15pm.  The first week is a mandatory orientation without dogs.  The last week is the CGC evaluation.  

    This session will run from February 23rd to April 6th.  Please note there will be no class on March 23rd.

    Is your dog bored with the same old "sit" and "stay"? Get his brain working with the Tricks class! We will work on a variety of unusual tricks, such as "say prayers", " sit pretty", "crawl", "peekaboo", and circling around an object. Many dogs do not get enough mental exercise - tricks training is the perfect remedy!

    This class is a prerequisite for the Tricks 2 and Rally-FrEe Foundation classes.
     
    Dogs attend all six classes.  This session will run from February 25th to April 8th.  Please note there will be no class on April 1st.  

    Please bring proof of vaccinations to the first class.

    More brain puzzles for your dog!  This class will take your training to the next level with challenging tricks.  Your dog will learn to use his body in new ways as he backs up, crosses his paws, "hugs" an object, pivots in place, balances treats on his head, and more.  You'll be amazed at what your dog can learn with the right guidance! 

    The Tricks Level 1 class is a prerequisite for this class.
