Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Prep Course is a 4 week series that meets once a week in the SPCA Tampa Bay’s Education and Training room. This course is designed for dogs that have mastered “The Basics” in Dog 101 and wish to continue to obtain the AKC’s CGC certification. Following the rigorous testing standards provided by the AKC, this course prepares you and your dog to pass all ten portions of the test with flying colors.
CGC Prep Course is the perfect course for anyone preparing to test for the CGC and those wishing to continue on to become Therapy Dog Certified. While all dogs that have taken Dog 101 or its equivalent are welcome to join, our trainers highly recommend participating in Dog 202 or Rally Obedience before joining the CGC Prep Course. After this course, you and your dog should feel fully prepared to tackle the AKC Canine Good Citizen Test, which will be administered at a later date after your class has finished!
Is your dog a Bully, Pittie, or Pibble? SPCA Tampa Bay offers CGC training in partnership with the Animal Farm Foundation. The AFF is a New York based organization dedicated to positively changing the perceptions of “Pit Bulls” across America. For every “Pit Bull” breed that passes the exam and earns CGC certification, AFF will make a $150 donation to the SPCA Tampa Bay.
Tuition is $100 per dog. Pre-registration is required. Sign up today, classes will fill up quickly!
