If you’ve had a desire to give back to others and you think you and your dog would be a good team to visit people in a hospital or nursing home or have children read a book to your dog… Now you can take the first step by signing up for my AKC Canine Good Citizen class.
Even if you don’t want to be a Therapy Dog Team, obtaining a CGC certificate can open up other new opportunities for you and your dog. CGC is also now an AKC Title. AKC has also expanded the CGC certificate to include an additional 2 advanced tests: the Community Canine (aka CGC-Advanced) and the CGC Urban.
As the we get closer to Spring, be on the lookout for additional classes to be posted.
Looking forward to seeing you and your pups soon. In the meantime, remember to dream about unleashing your dog’s pawsibilities!
