Is Your Pup Ready to Receive Their Canine Good Citizen Certification?

All-Star Obedience now offers the CGC course and testing

The Canine Good Citizens program was designed by the American Kennel Club to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. All-Star Obedience can train and test your dog through a 6 week course, recognized in several countries around the world. The result is a solid foundation for obedience, whether you want to build a stronger bond with your dog or want to advance them to a therapy dog.

If you are looking to train a service dog, emotional support, or therapy dog, the CGC test is a great foundation point to see if your dog even has what it takes.

Some insurance companies and apartments/condos are requesting that dogs pass the CGC test!
