Canine Good Citizen class offered

Peninsula Dog Obedience Group will offer a Canine Good Citizen course beginning Feb. 22 at 10 a.m. It is an eight-week class and designed to teach skills on passing the Canine Good Citizen test, which will be held on the last day of class.

The purpose of the CGC test is to ensure that a dog can be a respected member of the community because it is trained and conditioned to act mannerly in the home, public places and in the presence of other dogs. The program is open to both purebred and mixed breeds. The test is not a competition and does not require you and your dog perform with precision.

The program is offered through the American Kennel Club. For more information, call 262-6846.
