Canine Good Citizen Dog Training Program in Clarksville Tennessee

It’s one thing to teach your dog commands and how to behave nicely at home. It’s another thing entirely to teach your dog to play well in public, including how to behave around strangers and other dogs. Many owners find that their dogs regress to bad behaviors in new environments and situations, and that’s what our Canine Good Citizen dog training courses are designed to correct.

Dogs that complete these courses of varying lengths become accustomed to and comfortable in a variety of situations, including being approached by strangers, seeing other animals and dogs, handling crowds, and even walking through public spaces and buildings.
