Looking for More Than Just a Pet?
Canine Good Citizenship Certification (AKC) (CGCC)
We can help your dog be recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC™) Canine Good Citizen® Program, which is considered the gold standard for social interactive obedience. This certification also ensures your dog knows how to interact properly around people and other dogs. Your dog will complete beginning through advanced level obedience and social training and then participate in the CGCC Certification® program.
Canine Service Certification
Sometimes people want to rescue a dog or currently have a devoted family pet that they would like to train for Therapy Dog Certification or Service Dog Certification. We will evaluate your dog for temperament/social typing and personality type based on the John Earle Cognitive Behavioral Method. If your dog qualifies, we will create a personalized program for you. The training period averages 12 to 16 months.
Minimum requirements for Canine Service or Therapy Certification include:
- Evaluation for temperament/social typing and personality typing
- Successful completion of beginner/intermediate/advanced obedience training
- Successful completion of Canine Good Citizenship Certification
Service and therapy dogs need to be retested every year to ensure they are capable of fulfilling their duties. Count on us to assist you throughout your pet’s certification process.
