Canine Citizens

The purpose of these classes is to ensure that your dog

will be a respected member of our communities

and is trained to act mannerly in the home,

in public places and in the presence of other dogs.

These courses are for dogs that

already have some good manners skills. 

Although these courses follow the AKC curriculum and rules, mix breeds and unregistered dogs will also

receive an AKC certificate and title when test is passed.
