Canine Good Citizen Certification Testing

The AKC’s Canine Good Citizen® (CGC) Program, CGC 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 10-step CGC test may receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club. To review the 10 steps that are tested visit the [url=http://www.akc.org/events/cgc/training_testing.cfm]AKC.org[/url] website. How do I get a certificate? At the CGC test, owners should be given 2 parts of a three-part test form. On the form, owners are instructed to send in one copy of the test form with the recording fee of $5.00 to receive the certificate. Owners may choose to not purchase a certificate and to use the copy of their test results as proof of passing the CGC test. Certificates take 4-6 weeks for processing and printing. The high-quality certificate has the same format as other AKC certificates and the CGC logo is embossed in gold at the bottom. The new official CGC certificate is very attractive and is suitable for framing.

Effective January 1, 2013, CGC is now an official AKC Title, more letters after your dogs name!

      Even the sitting with distraction.

      The distractions are not that close...10 ft or more away. I squeaked Makana's horn and my Grandaughter jogged past the dogs 10-15 feet away.

    I love how the test was conducted in a park with lots of distractions. Shan did a great job making me feel at ease with the process. I also enjoyed all her helpers and felt good about leaving my dog with Sherry. Thank you Shan

    Tlhe testing was great. Mosby really is doing so much better with everyone. Some of his shyness is disappearing. So thankful he passed his test. and many thank to Shan for all her good help and instructions. Thank you to all the people that participated in the test. I concur with the other lady that said this is the best group of people with the dog club, always enjoy talking to everyone.

    4 Great Dogs are now AKC Canine Good Citizens. Congratulations to Mosby (Rosemary James), Sasha and Remi (Marilyn Sether) and Tigger (Donna Noce) on passing the test and earning their CGC title at our Spring Fling on April 27. I really enjoyed my first time as a CGC Evaluator. Many thanks to all my helpers.....Sherry, Dawn, Bev, Deanna, Kriste, Ray and Sandy....it takes a village...lol.
