The Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program, is an American Kennel Club (AKC) program to promote responsible dog ownership and to encourage the training of well-mannered dogs.
CGC is a 10-skill training program that is open to all dogs–purebred and mixed breed–that focuses on teaching the basics of good manners and obedience, instilling the values of responsible ownership, and strengthening the bond between you and your dog at home and out in the community.
Once your dog passes the CGC test, which is given during the 5th class, you will be eligible to send in your AKC CGC application. For details on this program you can visit AKC directly.
Some homeowners' insurance programs or hotels offer discounts for CGC dogs, and an increasing number of apartments and condos see passing the CGC test as a major bonus for becoming a resident.
Class takes place the first 4-weeks and the test is on the 5th week which is open to the public for $25.​
