CERTIFICATIONS

I am pleased to be able to offer numerous certifications for you and your pet as follows:

AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy

AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy is an owner incentive program designed to get owners to attend a basic training class with their puppies. Unlike the CGC Test, the AKC S.T.A.R.Puppy Test is given only at the conclusion of a training course that is at least 6 weeks long.

AKC Canine Good Citizen

The Canine Good Citizen Program is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs who pass the 10-step CGC test may receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club.

AKC Community Canine (advanced CGC)

AKC Community Canine is the advanced level of AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program. As with CGC, AKC Community Canine has a 10-step test of skills that dogs must pass to earn the official AKC Community Canine title. This is a title that appears on the dog's title record at AKC.

Public access certification for service dogs

ADI states that for dogs to be certified for access to public places like shopping malls, movie theaters and public pools, they must pass a standardized test. This test is called the Public Access Test (PAT) and is administered by a staff member of the assistance dog organization.
