CGC is a certification program that is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. The Canine Good Citizen Program stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs who pass the CGC test may receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club. Many dog owners choose Canine Good Citizen as the first step in training their dogs. The Canine Good Citizen Program lays the foundation for other AKC activities such as obedience, agility, tracking, and performance events.
As you work with your dog to teach obedience skills, you’ll discover the many benefits and joys of training your dog. Training will enhance the bond between you and your dog. Dogs with a solid obedience education are a joy to live with-they respond well to household routines, have good manners in the presence of people and other dogs, and thoroughly enjoy the company of the owner who took the time to provide training, intellectual stimulation, and high-quality life.
