Two Plymouth dogs become Canine Good Citizens!

Canine Good Citizen Michigan Dog Training

On April 9, 2014 two Michigan Dog Training (MDT) students and their dogs earned the American Kennel Club’s (AKC) Canine Good Citizen (CGC) title.  The CGC evlaluation consists of ten components such as walking on a loose leash, sitting, laying down and staying on command, coming when called, approaching but not bothering another dog team in close enough proximity for the handlers to shake hands and exchange pleasantries,  etc. To prepare for the evaluation, the dog teams completed MDT’s Intermediate Manners/CGC group class.  Congratulations to:

1. Alexandra Sitarik and her dog Samson, a Vizsla of Plymouth, Michigan

2. Margene Coulter and her dog Abby, a Golden Retriever of Plymouth, Michigan

If you want your dog to learn new manners and also become a good citizen, contact Michigan Dog Training at 734-634-4152.  A new set of group dog training classes start next week and private dog training is also available.


  1. First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and
    clear your mind prior to writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.

    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually
    wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Thank you!

    • Hi Rodrick, The best thing to do is “not to force it”. My blog articles are never the result of sitting down and trying to think what to write about. They come to me while I am doing other things and then I make time to write about it. When you write, think about an intro that gives the basic info of what your blog post is about, the body of the post is the meat and potatoes, then a summary.
