AKC Canine Good Citizen / AKC STAR Puppy Class

This class teaches your dog how to walk nicely on a leash, sit, down and stay on command, accept a stranger, to be calm while petting and grooming, walk calmly through crowds, and a reliable recall. Once your dog successfully completes the program he/she will be certified as a canine good citizen! AKC STAR Puppy class includes socialization time.

Bootcamp- CGC offered as a two week session instead of a four week session 

Loose leash walking class- Learn the ins and outs of teaching your dog to walk loose leash and politely beside you. No more pulling or dragging you every step of the way. Great for dogs three months and older.

Rally class – Rally class is a great stepping stone after CGC class and provides a link from the Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program to obedience or agility competition, both for dogs and handlers. A rally course includes 10 to 20 stations, depending on the level.

Shy dog class – This class is designed for the dog owner or shelter worker who is interested in learning more about working with dogs that have fear issues. Learn why dogs might be afraid of objects, people, or everything! And learn how to work with this behavior to promote confidence and safety.
