Canine Good Citizenship ("CGC") and Therapy Dog Inc. tests are held at the Richmond Dog Obedience Club four times a year.
If the test is scheduled for a Saturday or Sunday, the CGC registration is between 8:30 and 9 a.m. The actual testing begins at 9 a.m. The test will run as long as we have participants waiting. Generally, the tests are finished by 11:30 a.m. If the test is scheduled for a week night, registration begins at least 45 minutes before the scheduled time of the test.
TDInc Testing is held at 3:15 p.m. at RDOC, free of charge, every other month.
