UPDATE: We are scheduling an additional training session, starting the end of January 2020 because of the quantity of membership applications we are receiving! If you are interested in becoming a member, please submit your application immediately to avoid having to wait for the Spring training session. Successful applicants will be notified via e-mail. Please pay special attention to the instructions below to be sure you are uploading the correct documents, to avoid delay in your application approval.
In the meantime, you can look at the AKC Good Citizen (CGC) and work on some of the skills we train and that are required for the test. If you prefer to get your CGC from another source, we accept applicants who already have their CGC. The number of training sessions will be greatly reduced. You will be prompted to upload your CGC Title in the Application process.
Many people do not submit the correct forms for Rabies CERTIFICATE (be sure it is signed by veterinarian) and the Initial Health Record (needs to be downloaded from the link below, filled out and signed by your veterinarian and uploaded with your other documents). Photos should be high resolution head shots with a plain background of handler and pet- think passport photo! No other people or pets in the photos please. We need these for your badge(s). Thank you for your help in making sure your application is correct. We look forward to welcoming to the Faithful Paws Team!
To apply, please read the information below and then complete the application.
If you have previously submitted an application and paid the fee, please e-mail us at [email protected] to check your application status.

APPLYING TO BECOME A MEMBER
The Faithful Paws application process involves three steps:
- First, complete Application Part 1 below to start the enrollment of your pet in the program. You are allowed to enroll one pet to start. Only after becoming a member are you allowed to train another pet through the training process.
- After completing the form below, you will be redirected to pay the application fee of $22.
- When you have all of your documents ready, proceed to Application Part 2 where you will upload your pet’s Initial Health Record, Rabies certificate, photos of you and your pet, and a copy of your driver’s license. Finishing this form will complete your application.
Before completing the application below, you will need the following items:
- Initial Health Record for your pet(s). Please download the Initial Health Record form for each of your pets participating in Faithful Paws: Dog • Cat • Rabbit. Complete the form and have your Vet sign the form. Then, please scan or take a photo of the form(s). You will be asked to upload the image(s) on Application Part 2.
- A copy of your pet’s SIGNED Rabies Vaccination Certificate. This is a single page that is usually titled “Rabies Certificate” or “Certificate of Vaccination”. Please scan or take a photo of the certificate. You will be asked to upload it on Application Part 2.
- Copy of your driver’s license (to be uploaded on last part of the application).
- A picture of yourself and a picture of your pet. Two separate pictures. HIGH RESOLUTION (for the tech-savvy people at least 600 dpi if possible), plain background photos – like a passport photo. These will be used for badges.
- Submission of this form for HIPAA Confidentiality. Please complete the form now (it opens in a different tab, so you’ll be able to easily come back to this page): HIPAA Confidentiality Form
- Fee: $22 application fee. This fee is per family. (You will be directed to PayPal after clicking “Continue to the Next Step”).
At the bottom of the Application Part 1, you will be asked to enter your email address a second time (which will be used as your username for the Member’s Only area of the site) and a temporary password. You will receive a link to reset your password once your membership is approved. Once your application and required documents have been received, we will add you to our waiting list. As soon as there is room in a training class, we will notify those on the waiting list that they can start attending.
