The AKC’s Canine Good Citizen Program is designed to recognize dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. This program stresses responsible dog ownership for owners and training and good manners for dogs. All dogs who pass the 10 step CGC test may receive a certificate and their first official title from the AKC. The class will prepare you to take the (optional) test at the end. Manners 1 & 2 required for entrance to class (or by instructor approval.)
These classes will be held at Somesville Fire Dept (1157 Main St., Mt. Desert). To accommodate the demand, Manners 1 will be offered multiple times/dates so please pay attention which section you register for.
All classes will be taught by Whitney Thurston, CPDT-KA of Salty Dog Obedience and Adventure. Each class runs 6 weeks for 50 minutes. Her goal and passion is to help other dog lovers learn how to effectively communicate with their dogs, to help them build lasting relationships.
