Level 2 Class: Canine Good Citizen

Take your training to the next level! We’ll work on advanced skills like working with distractions and distance behaviors. We will also spend time practicing for the Canine Good Citizen test.

This class covers:
~ Attention and focus
~ Settle on a mat with dogs nearby
~ Stay until released
~ Come past distractions
~ Leave It with difficult distractions
~ Loose Leash Walking past distractions

~ Canine Good Citizen Test Items

The difficulty of these skills will increase each week. Keeping up with homework is recommended.

While we think socialization is an important experience and skill, this is not a social play class. Dogs will learn to control themselves around other dogs and strangers while on leash.

This class focuses on teamwork, which generally means one human and one dog. The Canine Good Citizen test is given at the owner / dog level. While it is beneficial to have all family members work your dog, only one person should work on CGC preparation.


Dogs should be up to date on vaccinations or have proof of titer tests.
Dogs should be well behaved around strange dogs and humans.
Dogs should be able to Settle, Leave It, Stay, Come, and walk on a loose leash without physical pressure on their body or yelling or shouting.


4 or 6 foot leash, a thin mat or towel, pea-sized soft treats.


This class meets one hour a week for 4 weeks.

Price: $125 per dog
