What is a Canine Good Citizenship test and where can I find one?
Per the American Kennel Club, the Canine Good Citizenship program, started in 1989, is a certification program that is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. The Canine Good Citizen Program is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs who pass the CGC test receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club and as of January 1, 1999, they are automatically recorded in the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen Archive. Anderson Dog Works offers CGC testing regularly.
