Dog Obedience Courses Added to Meet Demand at C-GCC

Written By Editor on 4/2/18 | 4/2/18

HUDSON – There’s something afoot among lovers of our four-legged friends: a rising interest in canine-training courses.

“Dogs are trending, so to speak,” said Robert Bodratti, director of Community Services at Columbia-Greene Community College, “and we’ve seen community demand for training classes rise accordingly.”

Bodratti said C-GCC has added three new dog-training classes in the Spring and Summer to accommodate inquiries from local dong owners. Taught by instructor Edith Rodegerdts, a veterinary technician and evaluator for the Canine Good Citizen Title through the American Kennel Club and with Therapy Dogs International, Beginning Dog Obedience, a six-week class held from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the lobby of the C-GCC Arts Center, will be held in the spring beginning on Monday, April 2, and again during the Summer I session, starting Wednesday, May 23 at 5 p.m.

This course teaches the basic commands, including sit, stay, come, stand for examination and grooming, down, and heel on lead. AKC competition rules are also taught for those who wish to pursue obedience titles.

In addition, Therapy Dog Preparation / Canine Good Citizen is a new class beginning on Monday April 2, continuing for six weeks from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. This class prepares dogs for therapy evaluations and will fine-tune a dog’s obedience skills.

Pre-registration is required; for more information, call the Office of Community Services, weekdays, at (518) 828-4181, ext. 3342.

A variety of other topics in courses include Fitness, Finance, Retirement, Eating and Sustaining Locally, Muffins and Quick Breads, and Real Estate Deals, Buying and Selling, are also being offered in the coming months at C-GCC; please visit our non-credit course listings page for more information.
