Description

Pre-requisite Beginner 1. This class will teach you and your dog the skills needed to advance to AKC Novice Obedience and Rally Obedience and the skills needed to earn an AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certification. All skills are on leash except the recall. Rally signs will be introduced and the basic skills that a handler/dog team needs in order to compete successfully will be taught, if one wishes to do so. The skills include: loose leash heeling through a crowd and with sits and downs on command, long stays, turns, recalls, sitting for petting, grooming or an exam, behaving politely around a stranger and another dog, and to be confident when facing distractions or being left with a trusted person. (Dog must be at least six months of age to be CGC tested. AKC charges $8 to register for the CGC certification after passing the test. OCC charges $10 for non-members who are not in the Intermediate Obedience class.)
