Good Citizen Training for good boys and girls!

What is “Canine Good Citizen” training?

“Canine Good Citizen” is a ten step generalized basic obedience and manners test for dogs provided by the American Kennel Club. Items on this test include accepting a friendly stranger, sitting politely for petting, walking on a loose leash, coming when called, stay and more! Do you think your dog has what it takes? Then join us for Canine Good Citizen Training & Testing! Canine Good Citizen prep occurs in a group class setting or private lesson setting. Cost may vary depending on what route you decide to take with your dog, but we will help you prepare you and your best friend for the Canine Good Citizen test.

We make training fun for dogs of all breeds, ages and sizes! Join us at Ohana Dog Training for a series of Drop-In “Canine Good Citizen” (or Beginner Obedience). Classes are Drop-In format, so you are able to work at your own pace. Puppies over the age of six months are welcomed to join us at these group obedience classes. $30 for one hour small group class of no more than four dogs. A smaller class format allows us to give more personalized attention to each dog / handler team. Ohana Dog Training focuses on the individual dog / handler bond and relationship-based dog training between handler and their canine companion.

Our next Canine Good Citizen Class / Evaluation will be held on Sunday, April 28th from 10:30am – 12pm. Register for this class by clicking the link listed here: CGC Obedience Prep Class Online Sign Up.
