Sign up for this 8-Week class of one hour sessions each and complete preparation for the Canine Good Citizen and also begin foundation handling for Pet Therapy. This class combines the AKC Canine Good Citizen behaviors with pet therapy related behaviors, an ideal dove tail. Dogs will be exposed to walk-bys with other dogs, wheel chairs, walkers and other unique situations. Please note that completing this class does not automatically mean you pass the CGC test, our testers will abide by AKC rules for testing. Every dog is an individual, so depending on the dog this class may need to be repeated. Finally, we welcome all dogs to the class providing they are free of reactivity toward humans and other dogs. This class will cover 7 weeks of preparation for the CGC test which will be given on week 8. We look forward to having you. This class is also required prior to taking the AKC Advanced CGC and Urban CGC group class which functions as the second 8-Week class for pet therapy prep.
Please be sure your dog's core vaccines are up to date, or you have up to date titers. We also require rabies for dogs over six months and bordetella. We also require the H3N2 canine flu vaccine.
