CANINE GOOD CITIZEN CLASSES
offered by Rogue Valley Kennel Club
are FREE for you and your dog
Owners are welcome to come to as many of the classes as they wish.
The cost to take the CGC test will be $20.00 if you choose to take the test
• give you an introduction to dog training
• reinforce lessons your dog has already learned
• help prepare your well-behaved dog for Canine Good Citizen testing.
These lessons are meant to supplement, not replace, a regular training course.
Owners of purebred and mixed-breed are encouraged to participate.
USUALLY, classes are at Riverside Park by the gazebo and rose garden in Grants Pass. Plan to come 30 minutes early to register.
**** LOOK FOR THE ANNOUNCEMENTS OF DATES AND TIME AND FOR ANY CHANGES ****
Dogs 6 months and older should be up to date on vaccinations and be on a six-foot lead with a training collar. Handlers should bring the dog’s comb or brush with them.
Classes are on a drop-in basis, so if you miss the first one, you can come to the next one.
Previous training experience is not required. Canine participants should be dog and people friendly. No aggressive dogs, please.
For more information call: 541-479-9694.
Classes are totally free. The optional CGC test will be $20.00 fee per dog.
AKC titles beyond the CGC
RVKC does not offer classes for these advanced titles but we do conduct testing periodically.
AKC Community Canine – CGCA (Canine Good Citizen Advanced)
click for more information about CGCA
AKC Community Canine (CGCA) requires that the dog demonstrate CGC skills in a natural setting such as in the community, in pet stores, or at shows.
AKC Canine Good Citizen-Urban
click for more information about CGC-U
AKC Urban (CGC-U) requires that the dog demonstrate CGC skills and beyond (such as riding in an elevator) in a setting that includes traffic, crowds, noises, smells and other distractions that are present in a city or town.
As with Canine Good Citizen, AKC Community Canine (CGCA) and AKC Urban (CGC-U) have a 10-step test of skills that dogs must pass to earn the official AKC title.
Testing groups are very small since the site is in public places downtown.
