Canine Good Citizens

We offer CGC Classes twice a year: Please check our current Calendar of Events to see our class schedule.  Thank You.

While we will still continue to offer CGC classes and certifications , we  have made the decision not to offer therapy dog Certifications.  Our CGC program will guide you on what you need to take that test and will refer you to a facility that can test you.

You can always  contact me for a private individual test should you feel you and and your dog are prepared. You can also join us in the Puppy Plus Basic Obeidience Class should you need more training.

Please note: I do not train service dogs.  If you have a service dog that just needs basic obedience training. I can do that.

Linda Scopa, AKC Certified CGC Evaluator, leads the team.

All of my dogs past and current are CGC Certified. This is a fun accomplishment for all dogs and owners to achieve. Come join us.

If you are a new students wishing to test only, you may do so in an Evaluation or Private. Fees are listed on the Evaluation Page.
