There are 2 CGC sessions per year which start in March and September and are scheduled on Friday evenings. Each session is a 9-week basic dog obedience and socialization class. Classes emphasize the fundamentals of appropriate canine behavior such as heel, sit and down on command, and also tolerance for other dogs and people. No prior training experience by owner or dog is required.
CGC Star Puppy ClassesAll-breed puppy classes are available for puppies up to 5 months and are scheduled during the same March and September timeframe as Canine Good Citizenship lessons on Friday evenings.
