When you start your Canine Good Citizen™ journey you’ll have some choices to make along the way. Based on you and your dog’s training needs, you have multiple options to get started.
You can teach your dog the 10 CGC skills yourself, work with a CGC trainer or attend a CGC training class where the test is given at the end of graduation.
From sit to stay, down to come, the AKC.tv is a great first stop for training your dog in the ten required CGC skills at home.
Remember, when training your dog at home, you’ll still need to make time for plenty of socialization, either through group classes or at your favorite dog park but this series can help you get down the basics.
