Canine Good Citizen & Therapy Dog Certification

AKC’s Canine Good Citizen (CGC),  AKC’s Advanced Canine Good Citizen (CGCA) and therapy dog certification is a GREAT way to begin working with your dog. Becoming a therapy dog is also a GREAT way to give back to your community by visiting nursing homes, hospitals, libraries and schools!. These tests show the dog is willing to behave with nice manners around new people and new dogs. They also demonstrate basic obedience commands of sit, down, stay and come when called and walking on a loose leash.

If you do not think your dog is ready to pass a CGC, CGCA and/or therapy test, All Dawgs Training Services & Daycare provides training to get your dog ready! Please visit our classes for additional training or check out the below dates if you believe your dog is ready.

All tests are held at the All Dawgs Training Services’ building at 30 Railroad Ave, Albany, New York
