Canine Good Citizen Workshop and Testing

What is Canine Good Citizenship?

The AKC CGC Program is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. It is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. The Canine Good Citizen Program lays the foundation for other activities such as therapy dog certification, obedience, and performance events.
