CGC Prep Class
Instructor: Alisha Fritz

Tuesday, January 23, 2018 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Canine Good Citizen Prep is an intermediate level course designed to help prepare dogs and handlers to take the CGC test.  Canine Good Citizen (CGC) is a certification program designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. Passing the 10-step CGC test earns a certificate from the American Kennel Club.  The test is not included as part of the class, but for a separate fee can be scheduled independently with the instructor once the student feels ready. The CGC certification is a pre-requisite for some therapy dog groups as well, including the Richmond SPCA Paws for Health program.  This class is for dogs who have already had basic training and are ready to polish those skills. We will cover exercises that help the handler and dog meet the CGC requirements - such as polite greetings, loose leash walking, and supervised separation. Prerequisite: Canine Manners or other basic manners class where dogs has been introduced to sit, down, come, stay and leave it.  Enrolled dogs cannot be reactive (barking, growling or lunging) towards humans or other dogs, must be up-to-date on vaccinations and at least 6 months old. Spaying or neutering is strongly recommended. Classes will be held in Smoky's Training Center, which is accessed from our 3rd parking lot. This class is by manual registration only, please call Gail at 804-521-1332.
