CANINE GOOD CITIZEN and THERAPY SKILLS CLASS: Tuesdays 6:00-7:00 pm. Starting April 21st.
The Canine Good Citizen Program is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. The CGC Test is offered by the AKC and requires dogs to pass a 10 part examination, demonstrating their obedience skills and tolerance to handling and strangers. All dogs who pass a 10-step CGC test may receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club. Many dog owners choose Canine Good Citizen training as the first step in training their dogs. The Canine Good Citizen Program lays the foundation for other AKC activities such as obedience, agility, tracking, and performance events.Therapy dogs are dogs that visit schools, nursing homes, and hospitals bringing a message of love and cheer. They should have proper greeting manners, leash manners and be able to tolerate dogs and strangers in their environment as well as some vigorous body handling. To work as therapy dogs, most organizations require teams to pass an evaluation or pass the Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certification.

Come learn the requirements for each of these examinations and hone your skills in preparation for them or just to practice good manners so your dog is welcome in the community.

HEAD START PUPPY CLASS: Tuesdays 7:15-8:15 pm. Starting April 21st. Six-week course, $125
Help your pup develop into a calm, capable adult through training in self-control, drive-building, basic obedience and exposure to new sounds, surfaces, objects, people and dogs.  First class (April 21st) is an orientation for the humans (no dogs).  Next 5 classes are for humans & dogs.  Household members are welcome as well. Not your typical puppy class! It’s packed with content and activity to get your puppy started right.  Class includes basic Obedience (Sit, Down, Stand, Stay, Come, Leave It, Walking On Lead and developing Attention) as well as an introduction to a few agility obstacles and other objects.  The Orientation prepares you for the training that will begin at home & continue in class starting week 2 & is your opportunity to ask questions about problem issues like jumping, barking, chewing & housebreaking.

-those that need a challenge mentally &/or physically;
-those that need to gain confidence by gaining skill and trust in their partners;
-young dogs just learning their potential;
-even the senior dogs that still want something to do, but need a little less physically demanding activities can find enrichment in these activities. Agility obstacles will be kept low or limited to avoid over-exertion for our seniors.
