Canine Good Citizen class

If you want to have fun with your dog and have his or her behavior be the envy of your neighborhood, attend classes to prepare your canine companion to receive a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certification. CGC teaches responsible dog ownership and certifies dogs that have the training and behaviors needed to make them reliable, well-behaved members of their families and communities. Both pure breed and mixed breeds are welcome. Dogs must be spayed or neutered and up-to-date on vaccinations.

Skills taught will include but are not limited to:

  • Sitting politely for petting
  • Coming when called
  • Sit/down stay command
  • Good behavior when meeting another dog
  • Right behavior when walking on a leash

AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program

The STAR Puppy Program is designed to get dog owners and their puppies off to a good start. When you complete six training sessions with your puppy (up to 1 year old) with FVHA’s canine behaviorist and AKC Approved CGC Evaluator Carol Beck, your puppy is eligible for the S.T.A.R. (Socialization, Training, Activity, Responsibility) Puppy Program! Upon completion of the sessions, Carol will administer the S.T.A.R. Puppy test. If your pup passes the test, you will be able to enroll in the S.T.A.R. Puppy Program! All breeds are welcome.
