The Rogue Valley Kennel Club (RVKC) is celebrating five new Urban Canine Good Citizen (CGC) titles! These members of Rogue Valley passed AKC’s Urban Canine Good Citizen test this month. I enjoyed testing the teams in downtown Grants Pass, Oregon and the photo below was taken in Umpqua Bank where they did their three-minute down stays. (Learn more about the Urban CGC program here and here).
The teams are (left to right): Fay Spears (Gypsy, Australian Shepherd Dog); Pat Etchells (Diggs, Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever); Dr. Lorain Abel (Jerome, Staffordshire Bull Terrier and Monarch, Whippet); and Sybil Longinotti (Max, Shetland Sheepdog).
Our town if very dog friendly, so we were thrilled to also get this nice write-up in Sunday's Grants Pass Daily Courier. Congratulations to all of the teams for their hard work!
