We hold an annual Rally and Obedience Trial in the spring - check back for information about our 2018 Trial.
This is an AKC program that tests the good manners of a dog. It is open to all dogs age 6 months and older, whether purebred or not. Ten different tests evaluate how the dog behaves in common situations - walking on a loose leash, behavior around other people and dogs, and how he or she reacts to distractions.
Those who pass receive a form from the evaluator, which you can send to the AKC for a certificate, suitable for framing. AKC also has 'CGC' patches available for purchase. Passing a CGC test is often a requirement if you're interested in having your dog become a therapy dog.
We usually have Canine Good Citizen tests once a year, either in the spring or the fall. Pre-registration is strongly suggested, and there is a nominal fee.
