BASIC OBEDIENCE

Level 2

This is the second of two classes that focus on basic control and manners useful for pets and competition dogs alike. During the last session of this class, students will take the AKC Canine Good Citizen test (both mixed-breed and pure-bred dogs are eligible), and those passing will be awarded CGC certificates. The ten elements of the test are

  1. accepting a friendly stranger
  2. sitting politely for petting
  3. appearance and grooming
  4. walking on a loose leash
  5. walking through a crowd
  6. staying in place at a sit or a down
  7. coming when called
  8. reaction to another dog
  9. reactions to distractions
  10. supervised separation
