New Canine Good Citizens!
Four dogs and their humans are the proud new recipients of the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen award! Joshua & Chloe, Ashlea & Dexter, Sarah & Harley and Keri & Mac earned their CGC’s following our Obedience 2 course.
All the dogs demonstrated sitting politely for greeting, petting and grooming; sit, down, stay and recall on cue; loose leash walking in a pattern and through a crowd; passing politely by another dog; and calmly waiting with their owner out of sight for three minutes.
The CGC is the benchmark for beginning Therapy Dog training and several of these dogs have plans to continue working toward certification so they can bring joy to folks at hospitals, skilled-care and assisted-living residences, and schools.
You can see photos of all these wonderful dogs and their people on our Facebook Page.
