title your dog


Congratulations Finn boxer, Ben, Cash x, Keira, Jace, Lincoln, Monroe, Kris, Emmitt, Scoop, Izzy and Eloise on receiving your Canine Good Citizen Certification! A big thanks to Luis & Tina Avery from It's a Dog's Life for administering this season's test!



For actively enrolled traditional class students, here's an easy way to give your dog elevated status in the pack and around the neighborhood.

We'll teach you how to title your dog yourself with our very own AKC Certified CGC Evaluator or, if you're short on time and actively enrolled in + dog doggie day school, a + dog faculty trainer can title your dog for you.

Titling your dog takes him beyond the basics and allows you both to reap the long-term rewards. Adding a few nationally recognized titles after your dog's name will also:

  • reassure your insurance agent when you apply for homeowner's insurance
  • help you buy a condo or get the association to rethink their "no pets" rule
  • build your dog's resume
  • show you are a responsible dog owner with an educated dog
  • reduce potential liability risk
  • enable you to brighten the day of appreciative nursing home residents or hospital patients
  • be fun while strengthening your bond!

Imagine how proud you'll be with one or more of these titles after your dog's name:

    CGC - Canine Good Citizen Award
    TD - Therapy Dog Certified
    RN - American Kennel Club Rally Novice Title
    RA - American Kennel Club Rally Advanced Title
    RE - American Kennel Club Rally Excellent Title
    CD - American Kennel Club Companion Dog Title
    U-CD - United Kennel Club Companion Dog Title
    TT - Temperament Test Certified
    SchH B - Schutzhund Obedience and Temperament Title
    and more

"No time like Thanksgiving time for visiting! Bella's good behavior and calm demeanor in these nursing home settings is a direct result of our time at + dog. She is a favorite of patients and staff alike!"
—Cathy M.
