I have been an approved CGC Evaluator for the American Kennel Club (#93744) since October, 2016. I guest teach CGC and Dog Sport Foundations classes at Clever Paws in Boise. I also offer occasional CGC, Pre-CGC and Puppy S.T.A.R. classes as a volunteer through the Idaho Capital City Kennel Club (ICCKC).
Due to Covid-19 in the state of Idaho, classes have been reduced. Classes will have no more than 5 participants, and face coverings will be required when indoors. Some test items have also been adapted to provide for more physical distancing. For more about CGC Policies regarding Covid-19, click here.

I currently conduct CGC Evaluation and Testing services when possible at AKC Sanctioned Matches and the Idaho Capital City Kennel Club Training Center. These have been mostly postponed in 2020 but hope to begin scheduling these again in spring 2021.
I can also conduct CGC and Trick Dog tests for clubs, classes, 4-H youth and service dogs in training upon request.
I will perform CGC Evaluation and Trick Dog Testing for other interested groups in the Treasure Valley for a base $25 travel/time fee plus $10 per dog/handler team tested. Teams passing the test will receive an official AKC ribbon.
I do not charge a fee for testing 4-H youth participants and service dogs in training.
Please note that there is an additional fee to apply for the CGC Title Certificate through AKC, and that is the responsibility of the handler. Passing teams will receive forms and instructions for completing this optional step.
Please use the contact form to inquire about any other upcoming training or testing opportunities.
