CGC Training Program (4-6 weeks)

The AKC’s Canine Good Citizen program is the gold standard of behavior for dogs in our communities. Almost one million dogs, both purebred and mixed breed, have participated in the program since it began in 1989.

Canine Good Citizen is part of the AKC Family Dog Program and many dog owners choose CGC as their first step in training their dogs. It also provides a great foundation for getting started in dog sports

Duration: 6 weeks | $350 per dog

AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program  (6 weeks)

The AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy is an exciting new program designed to get dog owners and their puppies off to a good start. The AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program is an incentive program for loving dog owners who have taken the time to take their puppies through a basic training class.    

When you complete a basic training class (taught by an AKC Approved CGC Evaluator) with your puppy (up to 1 year old) your puppy is eligible to be enrolled in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program. (Basic Training Classes: puppy training packages, doggy day care in Playa Vista, Santa Monica, Marina del Rey, and surrounding beach cities)  

Duration: 6 weeks | $350 per dog

Once your dog passes the CGC test

Once your dog passes the CGC test, you’ll be able to select one of these two choices: 

  1. CGC as a Title. Get the official AKC CGC title for your dog. The processing fee is $20. You will receive the CGC certificate, be able to use the suffix “CGC” after your dog’s name, and CGC will be added to your dog’s title record.To get the official AKC title, your dog must be registered or listed with the AKC (and have a number of one of these three types: AKC number, PAL, or AKC Canine Partners). This is because to create titles, we attach them to the dog’s number.
  2. CGC certificate only. Get a CGC certificate only without the official AKC CGC title. The processing fee is $10. CGC will not be added to your dog’s title record.
