Canine Good Citizen Training and Certification: An Outdoor Group Dog Training Class, beginning Saturday, March 23rd, 2019

This series of 6 classes will be taught by Park Cities Pet Sitter trainer, Valerie Fry, who is an official Canine Good Citizen evaluator.

Participants will learn and practice a number of “good dog” behaviors, like:

  • coming when called
  • sitting on command
  • down on command
  • staying in place
  • how to be non-reactive when meeting another dog or human
  • walking through a crowd without reacting
  • sitting politely for petting
  • sitting politely for grooming and light handling

These are just some of the behavior criteria that are included on the official Canine Good Citizen test.  The curriculum that will be taught during the group class was developed by the American Kennel Club, and provides a solid foundation for good dog manners and responsible dog ownership.   The class will be 6-weeks in length, with the Canine Good Citizen exam being administered to participants during the final week of class.  This is a wonderful, supporting environment to learn and test your dog’s skills and behavior.
