Thank you for inquiring about our training programs
for your dog.
training is not just for dogs that will be competing in obedience
trails, instead, obedience training is a must for all dogs - pets,
companions and competitors.
The dog has
been a companion of man since time immemorial, serving him in work
and play. Until just a few years ago his presence in the community
went unquestioned as very few restrictions were imposed on the dog
or its owner. This is changing, and changing far too rapidly. We
are witnessing ever increasing legislation enacted throughout this
country that could revoke once and forever any hope of a dog sharing
our lives and homes. We could someday even be forced to surrender
an old and faithful friend of many years.
KENNEL CLUB'S CANINE GOOD CITIZEN training program focuses
entirely on good dog manners, responsible pet ownership, and conveys
through acceptable behavior what is expected of all dogs in the
community. This program was designed as a response to the anti-canine
sentiment that has been gaining momentum these past few years. Results
of the program, thus far, have given the appearance that some of
the legal and public relations costs in dealing with and combating
breed-specific legislation have diminished.
PROGRAM, if it is to be successful, should include the
mixed-breed dog, since the anti-canine population does not discriminate
between the pue-breed or the non-pure-breed. With this in mind,
the program embraces all dogs.
DOG K-9 ACADEMY and the AMERICAN KENNEL CLUB (AKC)
urges all dog-owners to avail themselves of this program, thereby
assuring that the dog who shares our world, will always be a welcome
and respected member of the community.
