A seven-week program designed to successfully complete the 10-step test process for CGC Certification. The certification test is administered on the final session of the program.
The Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program was established by the American Kennel Club in 1989 as a means of rewarding dogs who were well-behaved companions at home and in the community. The goals of the CGC program are to teach responsible dog ownership and to reward owners that provide basic training to their dogs and dogs that have good manners. A key component of the CGC program is the 10-step test. All dogs who pass the CGC test receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club.
