Description: American Kennel Club developed the Canine Good Citizen Program as the gold standard of training for every dog in America, regardless of age or breed. CGC will provide you with the foundation you need to be a responsible dog owner, and it will show you how to teach your dog the skills he/she needs to be a well-mannered pet. The AKC CGC Program is a noncompetitive program open to all dogs, purebreds and mixes alike. The heart of the CGC Program is the AKC CGC evaluation, which assesses the ability of a dog to be a well-behaved member of the community. The CGC award shows a commitment to responsible dog ownership, and passing the ten-item CGC evaluation. After passing the evaluation, you can complete the paperwork to have your dog receive his/her AKC CGC Title. You’ll also receive a certificate from AKC, monthly email newsletter and your dog’s beautiful blue AKC CGC Ribbon.
