"Gentle Methods Produce Positive Results"
Canine Good Citizenship (CGC) and Rally
The CGC and Rally class is the logical next step after Beginner Obedience. In this class, your dog will continue training to become a model Good Citizen by:
· Sitting politely to greet new people
· Walking calmly in many environments
· Reliably coming when called
· Behaving around other dogs
· Being comfortable in unusual situations
At the completion of this class, you and your dog will be ready to take the tests for the American Kennel Club (AKC) Canine Good Citizen certification (link to AKC's web page). You may also wish to participate in the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) and AKC Rally title competitions.

This class lasts 7 weeks at 1 hour per week. Cost is $75.
