About the Event
Our Level 2 Class Prepares dogs for the AKC Community Canine Test and is a great introduction to Therapy Dog Training.
While Canine Good Citizen tests are simulations of real world skills, (e.g., dog/handler walks through a “crowd” of evaluators in a ring), the goal of AKC Community Canine is to test the dog’s skills in a natural setting. For example, rather than the dog being tested in a ring, in AKC Community Canine, the “walks through a crowd” test item will involve the dog walking through a real crowd at a dog show, on a busy sidewalk, in a therapy dog setting, or at a training club.
This 6 week long course will cover everything from included in the Community Canine training and will also discuss signing up to take the Pet Partners Therapy Dog Test and preparation for you and your dog to eventually become a certified Pet Partners Team.
Even if you do not have any interest in doing Therapy Dog work, this class will offer great practice with real world distractions.
Prerequisite: Successful completion of Adventure is Barking’s Level 1 class or Canine Good Citizen Certification.
This class meets on the following dates: 9/10, 9/17, 9/24, 10/1, 10/8, 10/15
