Canine Good Citizen test open to all. (Pit Bulls and obvious mixes are $10, all others are $20--manually adjust the price upward when RSVPing for a non-Pit Bull). RSVP for dogs ONLY.
You can get more information on the CGC test by visiting the AKC's website:
If you pass, you can send away to the AKC for your dog's CGC certificate (AKC charges a small fee to send your certificate). If you don't pass, don't worry! You can always try again later.
For collars, dogs should wear well-fitting buckle or slip ("choke") collars. Martingale style (sometimes called "limited slip") collars are permitted. Special training collars such as pinch collars, head halters, and electronic collars are not permitted in the CGC test. Regular harnesses are allowed (but no pull harnesses such as the EZ walk are not allowed).
Please make sure that your dog's equipment is SECURE and your dog cannot back out or slip out of his or her equipment. We strongly recommend that you back up your dog's equipment while your dog is waiting its turn.
What to bring:
- Appropriate collar or regular harness (see above for what's allowed)
- Secure leash
- Your dog's brush
- Water for you and your dog
- Copy of your dog's rabies certificate
- Pen to fill out paperwork
Observers without dogs are welcome (but we may rope you into volunteering for the "crowd"). Please email me and let me know if you'd like to observe without your dog.
