AKC Canine Good Citizen Classes & Testing

  • AKC Canine Good Citizen Classes & Testing

    This advanced obedience class is designed for dogs who have already completed formal beginner obedience and formal intermediate obedience classes or have a very solid training foundation at home. Not sure if your dog is ready for this advanced obedience class? Just ask us, we are happy to help! This class prepares you and your dog, through intensive practice, to take and pass the AKC Canine Good Citizen Test.

    Week 1 we will run through a mock Test to find out what everyone needs to work on, then weeks 2 – 4 we will practice and work on what each dog specifically needs to work on, as well as be helpers and teachers for fellow students. Then on week 5 we take another mock test to work towards an AKC Title for your dog! 

    Once you have passed the class, you will be emailed directly to set up the actual Canine Good Citizen Test by a Noble Beast Canine Good Citizen Evaluator.  Feel free to schedule the test ASAP if you and your pup are ready, or schedule for a later date if you need more practice – the test NEVER expires!

    The test and what we will be working on in class consists of the following:

    Test 1: Accepting a friendly stranger
    Test 2: Sitting politely for petting
    Test 3: Appearance and grooming
    Test 4: Out for a walk (walking on a loose lead)
    Test 5: Walking through a crowd
    Test 6: Sit and down on command and Staying in place
    Test 7: Coming when called
    Test 8: Reaction to another dog
    Test 9: Reaction to distraction
    Test 10: Supervised separation

    For more detailed information about what each test involves, please visit http://www.akc.org/events/cgc/training_testing.cfm

    This is a 5-week class, and each session is one hour long – same time, same day, and same place each week.

    • PAYMENT – Payment must be made prior to your first class AND no refunds will be honored 48 hours prior to a class start date, due to limiting the number of dogs in class.
    • MISSED CLASSES – While we are unable to accommodate makeup classes , if you are unable to attend any of the classes in your training series, simply let your trainer know as soon as possible and he/she will catch you up on the missed curriculum by emailing you the detailed and easy to follow homework as well as provide a phone or email consult if needed to ensure you don’t fall behind.
    • REFUND OF TRAINING – We only offer refunds on missed classes if there is an emergency situation with owner/dog, severe illness or death of owner/dog, or relinquishment of dog due to being a danger to self or others in the household.  We will also provide a refund due to proven trainer negligence.
