This AKC CGC prep class will meet for 4-5 weeks in a row for approximately 1 hour the first 4 weeks and for testing the 5th week for the dogs that don’t pass the test in week 4. Cost is $125 for all sessions. If all dogs pass on week 4, we can do CGCU or Trick Dog testing in week 5.
If interested please complete a registration form on arnicadia.com. All questions should be directed to my e-mail (email@example.com,) my main Facebook page (Cati Foss,) or my phone 503-468-2559 (text and voicemail accepted!) My class size is limited to 10 dogs only and on a first come first served basis!
Make sure that you bring your standard leash (retractable leashes are not allowed,) a collar or harness your dog CAN'T escape from, plenty of training treats, pick up bags, water, and a slightly hungry dog that is willing to learn as well as making sure I can get a copy of your dog's current vaccinations if I don’t already have them on file! Be aware that no training aids are allowed during testing (including clickers, treats, calming aids, e-collars, etc. You can bring a corrective harness or halter to class, but they must test in a non-corrective collar or harness.)
AKC CGC has a 10-step test of skills that dogs must pass to earn the official AKC title and/or certificate. Participants must have a dog that is registered with the AKC if they wish to add a CGC title to their dog's AKC name, but it is not necessary however for the class or testing and you can still get a certificate for CGC if you pass the test. As an important note: CGC does NOT make your dog a service dog as there is absolutely no certification process involved for a service dog; it is however a good preparation for public access training. This is one of the classes I use to determine if I will send a dog to continue on with Therapy Dog training and Manners/Obedience 3 as well.
