AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) and Therapy Dog International (TDI) 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 behavior 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 and/or TDI test, All Dawgs Training Services 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.
