Certified to be an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator

certified to be an akc canine good citizen evaluator Sep 16, 2022

Any dog owner can confirm that pet ownership is no walk in the park. It takes hard work, patience (a lot of it), and sometimes a few AKC Canine Good Citizen classes. Responsible dog owners need to take time from their schedules to train their dogs to exist in human society. An untrained dog is a danger to society and a nuisance to its owner, a situation that can lead to undesirable results.

Different Dogs Require Different Training

All dogs require different training methods—what works for one dog might not work for the other. For example, training your pup to socialize is a walk in the park if they are confident and extroverted in nature; the same is not the case for shy, introverted pups. For this reason, it is essential to take a few classes to learn what works for different pets and what doesn't.

Knowing how to train your dog increases your chances of getting along with your pup. The AKC Canine Good Citizen program prepares you for life with a dog; it pretty much guarantees a happy life for the pet owner and dog.

About the AKC Canine Good Citizen program

The AKC Canine Good Citizen Program is a two-part course; one for the pet and the pet owner. The dog owner draws the short straw; they must pledge to maintain the dog's safety, health, and quality of life. The dog goes through 10 part skills program that streamlines their social behaviors, obedience, walking skills, and confidence.

The good news is that we are scheduling AKC CANINE GOOD CITIZEN classes now for October certifications. 

The Benefits Of The AKC Good Citizen Program

All dog owners dream of having a well-behaved dog they can take anywhere. The AKC Canine Good Citizen lets you take your dog to family gatherings, the dog park, and even on planes (if the law allows it, ofcourse). The only downside is the time, love, and patience you will invest during the training process, which is nothing compared to the years of company, laughter, and love your dog will give back.
