CGC Testing

American Kennel Club Certifications

This class preps for and administers the CGC test for your dog. The CGC class teaches good manners to dogs and responsible dog ownership to their owners. The 10-step Canine Good Citizen test is a non-competitive test for all dogs, including purebreds and mixed breeds. The CGC award is a prerequisite for many therapy dog groups. Some homeowner’s insurance companies are encouraging CGC testing, and an increasing number of apartments and condos require that resident dogs pass the CGC test.

Dogs must be older than 16 weeks and must know basic Sit and Down commands.
