Duffy’s Therapy Dog Certification includes:

  1. American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizen Award

  3. Two unique talents

The possibilities of talents are as follows: high five, fetch a ball, speak on command, roll over, etc.

Before taking the Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test, owners will sign the Responsible Dog Owners Pledge. We believe that responsible dog ownership is a key part of the CGC concept and by signing the pledge, owners agree to take care of their dog’s health needs, safety, exercise, training and quality of life. Owners also agree to show responsibility by doing things such as cleaning up after their dogs in public places and never letting dogs infringe on the rights of others.
