Dogs with obedience training and practice have a higher success rate with testing requirements. We offer classes to help you and your dog prepare for tests, as well as in-house testing dates for certifications, including:

  • Canine Good Citizen (CGC)
  • Therapy Dog International (TDI)
  • C.L.A.S.S. (Canine Life and Social Skills) – all level of degrees
Note: The testing requirements for TDI have changed. The TDI test is divided into two phases and has 13 testing exercises. Please visit the TDI website for a complete description of the new test and other requirements.
