- 6 Week AKC CGC® Prep Group Classes: This is a group class to prepare you and your dog to take the AKC CGC® test. The first five weeks are familiarizing you with the test and teaching you and your dog to be able to confidently run through each test item, working through areas of training related to the test that benefit from improvement. The last week of class, you have the opportunity to take the test with your dog. Prerequisites for this class: Your dog must be familiar with basic training for sit, down, stay, come, and basic leash training. If you are interested in this course or training for the AKC CGC® test and your dog has had little to no former training, we recommend you sign up for private lessons or for young puppies, our AKC S.T.A.R.
