Canine Good Citizenship (CGC)
The CGC program is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. The Canine Good Citizenship Program is a two part program that stresses the responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs who pass the 10 step CGC test may receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club. The Canine Good Citizenship Program lays the foundation for other AKC activities such as obedience, agility, tracking, and performance events.
Obedience Trials (CD)
The bar is truly raised with obedience trials. Dogs and handlers enter obedience trials to demonstrate their ability to complete various tasks amid a high level of distractions. Competitive obedience offers a very stylizd manner of skill in performing on lead and off lead control. Dogs are judged on different skills at different levels. Beginning levels evaluate heeling skills, the recall and stationary exercises. Intermediate levels expand to evaluate retrieving and jumping. Advanced levels include off lead heeling and control at a distance without verbal commands, directed retrieving, scent discrimination, and directed jumping.
