Canine Good Citizen/Therapy Dog Class
How Will This Course Benefit My Dog? This course is designed for improving home manners and preparing for the Canine Good Citizen (CGC) or Therapy Dog (TDI) test.
What is CGC? The AKC Canine Good Citizen Program is a certification program that is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. All dogs who pass the 10-step CGC test may receive a certificate from the AKC (whether they are purebred dogs, registered with AKC or mixed breeds).
What is TDI? Therapy Dogs International, Inc. (TDI) is a volunteer group organized to provide qualified handlers and their Therapy Dogs for visitations to institutions, facilities, and any other place where Therapy Dogs are needed.
When are the tests? The last week of the class, your dog will be evaluated by an AKC CGC Evaluator. If available, a TDI Evaluator may also be present to offer the TDI Test. To find an upcoming TDI test, click here and select your state.
