Canine Good Citizen Practice Session

November 28 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am $30
3300 Falls Rd
Baltimore, MD 21211 United States

Canine Good Citizen is a title your dog can earn. It can help lay the foundation for your dog becoming a well-respected and welcome member of the community.

For more information about the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen, click here.

Classes will be held on Sundays at 10:00am and Tuesdays at 3pm.

Each course is $30. Completing the course doesn’t guarantee your dog will pass the test, but you will have the opportunity to retest if you desire. For a $28 fee, you can take the CGC Test without any practice sessions.

Upon completion, you’ll be provided the paperwork necessary to file for the official AKC certificate and title.

If you sign up for practice sessions, remember to bring treats your dog loves! It will help with training.

Note: Dogs that enroll should be friendly toward people. This class is not for dogs that show reactivity to other dogs (barking, lunging, whining) when on leash. If you have any questions about whether this class is appropriate, please email trainer@mdspca.org.

Requirements

  • Your dog must by fully vaccinated, four months or older, and people/dog friendly.
