Introduction and mastery of off-leash reliability. 

Preparing your dog for the AKC Urban CGC exam. 
The AKC Urban CGC requires that the dog demonstrate CGC skills and beyond in a setting that
includes traffic, crowds, noises, smells and other distractions that are present in a city or town.
As with Canine Good Citizen, AKC Urban CGC is a 10-step test of skills that dogs must pass to
earn the official AKC Urban CGC title.

Fear Free & Least Intrusive Minimally Aversive Training (LIMA) dog training in Bloomington, Indiana. 
Scout's Honor University is divided into four levels. Your pup will be placed into their starting level after a $25 Training Evaluation with Scout’s Honor owner and trainer Kristen Perrus. Your dog will progress at their own pace (and yours) through Scout’s Honor University as they accomplish and master specific skills in each level. Enrollment in Scout’s Honor University does not require a commitment to complete each level. Owners and dogs may start and stop as they please to accomplish their training goals. Completion of Scout's Honor University earns your dog the American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen Certificate

University students have the option to train in a way that best suits their lifestyle. For best results, we recommend participating sending your pup to hybrid school weekly in addition to training alongside them during a group class, pack walk, and/or private lesson.
