We offer CGC Classes twice a year: once in the late Spring and once in the late fall. Please check back for the dates for 2018. They will be posted after February. Thank You.

You can contact me for a private individual test.

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 not ready for the test, you will have to retest on another date. Fee is $98.00 regardless if you test or not. It is recommended that you have already taken one of Basic Obedience Classes.
