  • “Emily is fantastic. Murphy is an extreme challenge to groom, but Emily has been working with him and now has a system worked out for getting him done. She is the only groomer able to handle him. We are so grateful for her time and patience and she does a great job." - Kerry C.

CGC (Canine Good Citizen) / Therapy Dog Information Seminar
Have you ever wondered if your dog would make a good Therapy Dog? Do you want to find out more about the process, preparatory training, necessary skills and cerification? Bring your dog for an initial consultation and find out what you need to know about the preparation and certification process.

Prerequisite: None

CGC (Canine Good Citizen) / Therapy Dog Preparatory Class
This class will concentrate on the ten exercises your dog must perform to earn the CGC certification, sanctioned by the American Kennel Club (AKC). The test requires your dog to demonstrate basic obedience commands, control in every day situations and appropriate social skills while in public. We will also address the additional exercises needed to pass therapy dog evaluations, which provides certification for Therapy Dog visits. Class offerings include one-hour workshops or multi-week classes.

Prerequisite: Graduate Puppy, Teen II or Intermediate

Classes are continuously being added to our schedule. Online updates are made as quickly as possible, however, we suggest checking directly with the individual store location for the most up-to-date information.
