Canine Good Citizen Training 301 | Paws 'n Claws in Erie, PA

Paws 'n Claws offers a Canine Good Citizen class that is designed to teach you and your dog all that is needed to pass a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test and earn your American Kennel Club recognized CGC Certificate.  The American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizen test is a certification program that evaluates dogs within everyday situations in a relaxed, noncompetitive atmosphere. By passing the test, it denotes that your dog has learned how to be reliable family and community members. Further, it indicates that your dog can walk nicely on a leash, be in the presence of other dogs and people without any arousal issues, and can be petted by strangers. An introduction to the obedience exercises for Beginner Rally will be incorporated into this course as well. This certification is required in order to have your dog further tested for therapy work.
