Canine Good Citizen

When Lainey, our pit bull, was just 6 months old we enrolled her (and I) in Puppy Foundation classes.  After successfully passing, we quickly enrolled in a Social Manners class.  We are currently in Advanced Obedience classes where we will graduate next week.

That is 18 weeks of training classes that my Lainey Bug and I have endured together.  She has come so far from that first night of class.  Those hours spent training, at home and the training facility, have definitely formed a special bond between my girl and I.

As I stated, next week is our last night of Advanced Obedience.  On this night we will be taking the AKC Canine Good Citizen test.   The goal is to stress responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs.  The program is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community.

I'm feeling fairly confident that if Lainey has a good night we will pass with flying colors.  On the other hand, she has a tendancy to be moody sometimes which results in a very uncooperative dog.

Wish us luck!!

Please help dogs like me and stop Breed Specific Legislation
