Canine Good Citizenship is a good base for any dog’s core obedience training. Several therapy dog programs are now requiring citizenship as a prerequisite for service as well.

By teaching your dog to be a good citizen, you are increasing the amount of quality time you can spend together.

Many restaurants, hotels, and vacation destinations welcome Canine Good Citizens. Your dog’s Canine Good Citizen status may even entitle you to discounts or other benefits with some organizations and can also be an advantage when renting or leasing a home.

Intensive Canine Good Citizen Training Course

Session 1 - Accepting a friendly stranger

Your dog is going to come into contact with guests in your home, service people, delivery people, and strangers on walks and trips. We will help you:

- Conduct Ignore Training.

- Teach your dog to stay calm around strangers;

- Teach your dog how to be comfortable around strangers.

Session 2 - Sitting politely for petting

This lesson provides tips and strategies for dog owners to train their dogs in various behaviors, including sitting politely for petting, practicing threshold waits in public, coping with a dog jumping up on people, and training dogs to sit. The lesson suggests various approaches to train dogs to behave appropriately in different situations and how to handle different types of people while training. By following these tips, dog owners can improve their dogs' behavior and reduce the likelihood of jumping, struggling, or showing shyness when strangers approach them.

Session 3 - Allowing basic grooming procedures

This lesson is a practical guide on how to train your dog to accept grooming, and it includes tips and methods for introducing grooming tools, touching and brushing your dog, trimming their hair, and clipping their nails. The lesson emphasizes the importance of regularly grooming your dog and keeping them clean and healthy. The lesson also briefly mentions the requirements for the Canine Good Citizen test's grooming and examination session, where the dog must permit someone to groom and examine them without struggling.

Session 4 - Walking on a loose lead

In this lesson, the focus is on teaching dogs how to walk on a loose leash. The lesson emphasizes the importance of leash manners and how it demonstrates the handler's control over the dog. The lesson provides tips on how to train a dog to walk on a leash and gradually add distractions while rewarding the proper heel position. We want to affirm that daily walks, even if short, are crucial for a dog's physical and mental health. Lastly, the lesson encourages incorporating training time during walks and changing up the route to keep the dog engaged.

Session 5 - Walking through a crowd

This lesson provides guidance on how to socialize a dog to be comfortable in busy public places, demonstrating good behavior in pedestrian traffic. Environmental preparation is necessary, including distraction training with moving objects, before progressing to crowded areas. The lesson suggests finding dog-friendly stores, malls, and events to practice walking through crowds, starting with short walks and gradually increasing the time. Loose-leash walking skills are crucial, and some events may not be safe for dogs due to the volume of people.

Session 6 - Sitting and lying down on command and staying in place

The lesson discusses the importance of teaching a dog the "sit" and "down" commands, and how to train them using positive reinforcement. It also recommends practicing these commands with a 20-foot-long line (6 meterts) to prepare for the Canine Good Citizen Test. The lesson emphasizes the importance of using the line to keep the dog safe and under control during training and testing.

Session 7 - Coming when called

Learn how to teach your dog his name and come when called in this lesson. Discover effective training techniques like linking your dog's name with positive reinforcement, using cues, and hand-feeding to create a strong bond and improve focus. Avoid negative associations with coming to you and make sure to practice the command regularly to ensure success.

Session 8 - Reacting appropriately to another dog

The lesson includes three dog training methods: reacting appropriately to another dog, teaching your dog to heel, and finding dog distractions in a safe environment. Reacting appropriately to another dog involves teaching your dog to approach and interact with other dogs politely, while teaching your dog to heel involves having your dog walk close by your side. Lastly, finding dog distractions in a safe environment requires finding a place with a suitable number of dogs to practice, while also ensuring safety. These methods require patience, practice, and consistency.

Session 9 - Reacting appropriately to distractions

Training your dog to react appropriately to distractions is key to having a well-behaved and confident companion. This lesson provides tips for training your dog around distractions, including starting with small distractions and gradually increasing them, using your dog's food as a distraction, practicing in controlled environments, and celebrating milestones. It also includes a list of potential distractions and encourages getting out into the community to expose your dog to different stimuli.

Session 10 - Calmly enduring supervised separation from the owner

This lesson provides tips for training your dog to calmly endure supervised separation from you and to maintain good behavior. It includes steps for teaching impulse control, introducing a stranger, and reuniting calmly. It also suggests practicing supervised separation in various outdoor places, such as coffee shops or farmer's markets. 

Assessment Method

At the end of each training session, our tutor team will conduct an online evaluation of your training progress. You will be asked to complete a quiz and submit photos and videos of your dog performing specific tasks and exhibiting proper public behaviors. This method of continual assessment ensures that your personal trainer can consistently monitor your training progress, provide you with assistance throughout the course, and prepare you for final certification and public testing.
