NEWS: Canine Good Citizen® Becomes a Title!

As of January 1, 2013, Canine Good Citizen® will become an official AKC title that can appear on the title records of dogs registered or listed with AKC. Dog owners who complete the CGC as a Title process may list the suffix “CGC” after the dog’s name.

Since the program began in 1989, CGC™ has been considered an “award,” meaning that it has not been listed on a dog’s title record.

As a result of frequent, ongoing requests from dog owners and instructors for AKC to recognize CGC as a title, dog owners will have the option of having CGC added to their dog’s title record and appear as a part of the dog’s titled name.

Come, Sit , Stay - Welcome to Leighthouse Kennels. We'll show you the way!

Here at Leighthouse Kennels our focus is on your needs. We offer a variety of classes in obedience and conformation - keeping in mind the relationship between dog and family. Please check out our links about Dog Training and the services we offer.  Private classes, in home behavior consultations and rentable off lead play areas are part of some of the unique services we offer. At this time we do not offer boarding services. Although we are also a show kennel with many successes in the ring , we do not breed or feel the need to add to the pet overpopulation problem. Rather we are committed to purebred and shelter animal rescue.

Leighthouse Kennels is situated on five wooded acres in historic Albion, New York.

Conveniently located between Rochester and Buffalo NY.

Several fenced play areas on five acres! Please visit us and enjoy our dog walking trail too! Fenced areas are rentable for independent training.


Understanding your dog and knowing how to control him, develop his potentials and resolve behavior problems, emotional conflicts and frustrations are no less essential than love and respect --Michael W. Fox
