4/3/2022 - CGCU + CGCA

Congrats to Ember for earning her CGC Urban and CGC Community Canine titles! These aren't super challenging tests and are skills that all dogs should have in public. If you take your dog with you (or would like to!) to places like dog friendly coffee shops, breweries, restaurants, etc., the skills these tests require should be a breeze. If you're struggling with some of these behaviors, like walking through a crowd on a loose leash, down stays, recall, good behavior around people and dogs, etc., reach out! We would love to help you have the well-behaved dog you can enjoy taking with you in public.
