CGN Therapy Dog Prep

Would you like your dog to visit schools or nursing homes and help those requiring emotional support?

The Canine Good Neighbour test is a 12-part evaluation used by CKC and other organizations, prior to dogs going into therapy work or to provide emotional support. This program will prepare you and your dog for each of the tests conducted by both CGN and Therapeutic Paws.

This course consists of putting obedience skills into highly distracting exercises, including greeting "strangers" and other dogs politely, accepting grooming and examination, door etiquette and making sure your dog feels comfortable being out of your sight, and more.

This is an Advanced class. Be sure your dog is ready before registering for this course. Your dog must be able to walk nicely on a loose leash, have a solid stay, not jump up, and not get excited when they see a stranger by rushing forward to greet them. We do not work on these skills in this class. They must also be able to do all of these behaviours without the use of food. If your dog is still doing any of these things, email the office and we’ll let you know what program you need before taking this one.

If you have taken an Intermediate class elsewhere, we will require proof of completion.

Prerequisite: Practical Living Intermediate or an Intermediate group class taken elsewhere.

Course Fee: $234.00 (+ taxes)     Length: 6 weeks
