Canine Good Citizen

Class Description:

The Canine Good Citizen, or 'CGC,' class is a very useful class. The American Kennel Club (AKC) has outlined its expectations for dogs who can interact peacefully and responsibly in normal conditions in and out of the home and around friendly strangers and other dogs. This outline is used to test dogs, and upon successful completion of the test, your dog will be given an AKC "Canine Good Citizen" title.

For more information regarding the AKC's CGC title, visit the AKC's Canine Good Citizen page.
