Canine Good Citizen & S.T.A.R Puppy Behavior Training for Shelter Pets

In July of 2018, Humane Society of Pulaski County began training adoptable dogs to pass the Canine Good Citizen exam, an obedience test designed by the American Kennel Club. These obedience tests consist of ten different real-world scenarios that demonstrate solid obedience training and general reliability. These skills enable the pets to be ‘CGC Ready,’ demonstrating that when partnered with a responsible person, he or she possesses all the qualities of a well-trained and reliable pet.

In addition, we have started offering Canine Good Citizen classes for adopters and their dogs, and S.T.A.R. Puppy classes for their new puppies.  We have also extended our puppy class to ANYONE who has adopted a dog from HSPC or a city/county shelter!

See program details of each by following the links below.
