Cost is $175

The American Kennel Club (AKC) Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test is a 10 step skill test that shows our community that your dog can be a well-mannered, well-trained dog in public. In this four-week class, we practice the skills for the dog and the handler that are tested. We review the requirements of the test and how the skills are evaluated. The class concludes with the CGC test. Check this website and the Praise Dog Training Facebook page for the schedule.
