Is Your Dog a Canine Good Citizen?

Pender Canine Good Citizen Class (CGC) is for Age 4 months and up.  The Canine Good Citizen Program is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs who pass the 10-step CGC test may receive an official CGC title from the American Kennel Club.  Topics taught and tested for dogs in class include:  accepting a friendly stranger, sitting politely for petting, proper canine appearance and grooming, walking on a loose lead, walking through a crowd, sit and down on command, staying in place, coming when called, calm reaction to another dog, calm reaction to a distraction and supervised separation.

Check out our Events Calendar for our next Pender Canine Good Citizen classes held at Pender Veterinary Centre, next to Fair Oaks Mall.
