CANINE GOOD CITIZEN TRAINING

Dogs of all ages

Canine Good Citizen, or CGC, is a ten-skill training program that’s open to all dogs–purebred and mixed breed–that focuses on teaching the basics of good manners and obedience, instilling the values of responsible ownership, and strengthening the bond between you and your dog at home and out in the community.
