College and Grad School

Learning is lifelong! Your dog can continue to learn and progress throughout their life with our advanced classes:

Canine Good Citizen

Join the top dogs and have your dog become a Canine Good Citizen. Teach your dog manners that will assist them in becoming a therapy dog, help them lay the foundation for other activities such as obedience, agility, tracking, and performance events.
By the end of the CGC training, your dog will learn to sit politely for petting, remain calm on the leash when around other dogs, walk through a crowd on a loose leash and take a leisurely walk through the neighborhood, even with the distraction of skateboards, bicycles or other dogs!
The CGC is a certifying program that is designed to reward dogs that have good manners at home and in the community. Dogs that pass receive the American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen Certificate.
