Canine Good Citizen workshop

  • Sep 28, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • Cooperative Extension

ONLY RSVP for number of dogs you are bringing (only ONE dog per person, so if you have two dogs you want to bring, you need two people). 

This is a workshop (not a test) for those who want to work toward getting their dog's Canine Good Citizen certificate from the AKC. Any dog can work toward a CGC, even dogs not registered with the AKC. 

More information on the test items for the CGC are on the AKC's website:

This workshop will last approximately 1.5 to 2 hours and will be an overview of the test items and how to train for each test item so that, after the workshop, you have a clear understanding of the CGC test and what you need to work on with your dog to pass the test in the near future.

Chako will be scheduling a CGC test in the near future for those who have taken the workshop.

Bring with you: 

• Safe, secure equipment for your dog (the CGC does not allow prong, head, or no pull collars/harnesses, but you can use any equipment for training/workshop as long as it is secure; if you use a prong collar, it MUST be backed up to a regular collar or harness).

• Your dog's brush

• Your dog's proof of rabies vaccination (so dog's must be over 4 months to attend)

• Poop bags to pick up after your dog

• Water for you and your dog

    Hi Dawn, I'm going to have to cancel. The shelter really, really needs help for World Rabies Day tomorrow so I'll be doing that. I hope you're doing this workshop again soon. I know I can apply my payment towards another class. Thanks!

    Hello- I had to change my RSVP status and cannot go. I can't remember if this class is refundable or if I can apply the ten bucks towards another class. Thank you,

    Is this open to guests where they can just sit and watch to learn stuff about CGC?

      Yes, we have a 50% observer fee (no dogs). Just show up with the $5 (but let me know in advance because observers are limited in number)

      Hey, i just finally heard back from my interpreter friend who will gladly volunteer her time to interpret this event for me. It's about $55 dollars an hour for an interpreter to do this job, and we are lucky we got her. So, yes, i can say i can make it eventually. Mom would like to tag along, too. That means there would be 3 of us altogether with one of us being the interpreter.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
