This class is designed for handler and dog teams interested in pursuing therapy dog work. The AKC Canine Good Citizen® Program (CGC) is designed to recognize handlers with dogs that are well trained and well behaved members of their home and community, in the presence of other dogs and distractions. A dog must naturally possess characteristics for therapy dog work and have (dog and handler) reliable training skills. This class prepares appropriate teams for CGC testing on the final week of class with an approved evaluator.
*Designed for mature, social dogs with previous professional training strongly recommended.
