Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Test

1:00 - 4:00 PM

The Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program is an American Kennel Club program to promote responsible dog ownership and to encourage the training of well-mannered dogs. A dog and handler team must take a short evaluation of less than half an hour; dogs who pass the evaluation earn the Canine Good Citizen designation.

The evaluation consists of ten objectives. All items must be completed satisfactorily to earn the CGC certification. Test items include:

Accepting a friendly stranger.

Sitting politely for petting.

Allowing basic grooming procedures.

Walking on a loose lead.

Walking through a crowd.

Sitting and lying down on command and staying in place.

Coming when called.

Reacting appropriately to another dog.

Reacting appropriately to distractions.

Calmly enduring supervised separation from the owner.

Dogs do not have to be registered with the AKC to earn a CGC, nor do they have to be purebred or, in fact, registered with any canine organization. The goal is to promote good citizenship for all dogs.

Cost $10.00
