Solivita Canine Good Citizens Class(CGC)

This is Todd’s advanced obedience class. If your dog loves people and dogs, is adventurous wanting to get out in the world, and can demonstrate a good understanding of all the basics(Sit, Sit-Stay, Down, Down-Stay, Come), then he/she is ready for the Canine Good Citizens class.

The CGC Program teaches good manners to dogs and responsible dog ownership to their owners. The 10-step Canine Good Citizen test is a non-competitive test for all dogs, including purebreds and mixed breeds. The CGC award is a prerequisite for many therapy dog groups. Some homeowner’s insurance companies are encouraging CGC testing, and an increasing number of apartments and condos require that resident dogs pass the CGC test. The CGC Program also includes the AKC CGC℠ Responsible Dog Owner Pledge.
