dogCanine Good Citizen Class

Started in 1989, the CGC Program is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. The Canine Good Citizen Program is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs who pass the 10-step CGC test may receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club.

Many dog owners choose Canine Good Citizen training as the first step in training their dogs. The Canine Good Citizen Program lays the foundation for other AKC activities such as obedience, agility, tracking, and performance events. As you work with your dog to teach the CGC skills, you’ll discover the many benefits and joys of training your dog. Training will enhance the bond between you and your dog. Dogs who have a solid obedience education are a joy to live with-they respond well to household routines, have good manners in the presence of people and other dogs, and they fully enjoy the company of the owner who took the time to provide training, intellectual stimulation, and a high quality life. We sincerely hope that CGC will be only a beginning for you and your dog and that after passing the CGC test, you’ll continue training in obedience, agility, tracking, IPO, or performance events.

These classes are held once a week for 6 weeks.  Our final week of class includes the CGC test.  We teach your dog all of the necessary skills for the test in the first 5 weeks of training, then test to make sure they have mastered those skills on week 6.  If you and your dog passes your dog will be eligible to receive the official Canine Good Citizen certificate.

All dogs, including both purebred and mixed breed dogs are welcome to participate in the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Program. Dogs must be old enough to have received necessary immunizations such as rabies vaccines. Owners will sign the Responsible Dog Owners Pledge attesting to having the dog under the routine care of a veterinarian who will work with the owner to determine an appropriate plan and schedule for vaccines and other health care procedures.

There is no age limit for the CGC test. A dog is never too old to be a good citizen. Puppies who have completed all immunizations and boosters may be tested, however, because we know that behavior and temperament can change over time, when puppies pass the CGC test, owners should have them re-tested as adults.  These obedience classes are held in Wichita or Andover and are once a week for 6 consecutive weeks.

AKC Community Canine Class

The Advanced Canine Good Citizen class is for dogs that have already completed and passed the Canine Good Citizen test. This class covers many more “real-life” scenarios you will encounter with your pet and solidify their previously learned commands.

AKC Community Canine is the third level of the Canine Good Citizen Program. In AKC Community Canine, dogs can earn the CGCA (Advanced CGC) title.

The goal of AKC Community Canine is to test the dog’s skills in a natural setting. While Canine Good Citizen tests are simulations of real world skills, (e.g., dog/handler walks through a “crowd” of evaluators in a ring), the goal of AKC Community Canine is to test the dog’s skills in a natural setting. For example, rather than the dog being tested in a ring, in AKC Community Canine, the “walks through a crowd” test item will involve the dog walking through a real crowd at a dog show, on a busy sidewalk, in a therapy dog setting, or at a training club.

This class meets once a week for 6 weeks.

jumping

Competitive Obedience

This class is designed for handlers wanting to compete with their dog in obedience and rally competitions. These classes are adjusted based on what level the handlers and dogs attending are at. Engagement, focused heeling, retrieves, jumps and much more is covered.  These are normally done is private sessions or in small groups in Wichita or Andover.  These classes are for those who are looking to compete with their dogs not just wanting a well behaved pet.

ipo

IPO/Schutzhund

These sessions prepare you and your dog to compete in the sport of IPO. Building and harnessing the correct drive in your dog through all three phases of tracking, obedience, and protection is the main focus while teaching the handler how to work their dog. Not all dogs are able to do this kind of work and an initial session to evaluate your dog is required. For more information please visit our K9 School of Wichita page.  This training is different from our personal protection dog training in Wichita. IPO is a very competitive sport and is a separate program from our personal protection dog training.  If you are interested in our personal protection training visit our protection dogs page.
