    Canine Good Citizen

    The Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program, established in 1989, 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 behavioral evaluation of less than half an hour; dogs who pass the evaluation earn the Canine Good Citizen certificate.

    This program is the backbone of other exams, such as those given for therapy dogs, and is a good starting point for more advanced dog training.

    The evaluation consists of ten objectives. All items must be completed satisfactorily or the team fails. 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



    : Are always available for those who have specific problem areas and/or prefer one to one instruction.
