Canine Good Citizen Series (Class #4)

We will be running a special series this month to help people prepare for (and take) their AKC Canine Good Citizen test. Each week, we will focus on 2-4 skills required for the test. The final week, the test will be given. All passing dogs will receive a ribbon, and paperwork to get their title and certificate with the AKC. The cost of the series is $100 and includes the test. If you wish to use class passes, they will be counted at face value.  Next month, we will offer the CGC-Advanced (Community Canine). In order to participate in the CGC-A, you must have a CGC on record.  If you wish to only do part of the series, you may enroll in only the weeks you want to attend. If you wish to do the test only, that is also allowed.
