Canine Good Citizen Classes and Titles

NOTICE: Classes will resume Wednesday, September 13.

Canine Good Citizen Class

We endorse the American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizen program as a measure of good manners in companion and competition dogs. More than 700,000 dogs have passed the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen exam nationwide. It is an important milestone in successful therapy and service dog training.

OTCPBC offers Canine Good Citizen classes and testing every two months. You may also request a CGC exam by contacting us at [email protected]
