AKC Canine Good Citizen

Puppy Training ProgramA fun way to show off your pets good manners, the Canine Good Citizen Program is a great step to continue your pet in therapy and service dog work.

The purpose of the CGC Program is to ensure that our favorite companion, the dog, can be a respected member of the community because it has been trained to be well behaved in the home, in public places, and in the presence of other dogs. The CGC Program welcomes both purebred and mixed breed dogs. The CGC Test is noncompetitive and dogs are not required to perform with the same precision required in formal obedience.

Dogs that pass all 10 items of the CGC test are listed in the CGC records at the American Kennel Club (AKC). Owners of dogs that pass all 10 items of the CGC test may order an official CGC certificate from the American Kennel Club.
