CGC Test

Canine Good Citizen Testing
Deadline: March 25, 2015

The CGC Program is a program that is designed to certify dogs that have the training and behaviors needed to be reliable, well-behaved members of their families and communities. This is not an obedience trial, it is much more relaxed.
We are asking that you pre-register so that we may schedule the testing when it is convenient.
Fee: $5.00 – Whippets & $10 – Non-Whippets

RULES AND INFORMATION FOR ALL OWNERS:
• There is no age limit for dogs taking the CGC test. The exception to this is that with any AKC event they must be at least 6 months of age.
• All tests must be performed on leash. Dogs should wear well-fitting buckle or slip collars (including martingales) made of leather, fabric,
or chain. Special training equipment such as harnesses, pinch collars and head collars are not permitted.
• Dogs with disabilities such as the loss of a leg, deafness, or blindness in one eye are welcome in the Canine Good Citizen Test.

The 10 test items are:

• ITEM 1: ACCEPTING A FRIENDLY STRANGER
• ITEM 2: SITTING POLITELY FOR PETTING
• ITEM 3: APPEARANCE AND GROOMING
• ITEM 4: OUT FOR A WALK (WALKING ON A LOOSE LEASH)
• ITEM 5: WALKING THROUGH A CROWD
• ITEM 6: SIT AND DOWN ON COMMAND/STAYING IN PLACE
• ITEM 7: COMING WHEN CALLED
• ITEM 8: REACTION TO ANOTHER DOG
• ITEM 9: REACTION TO DISTRACTIONS
• ITEM 10: SUPERVISED SEPARATION
Owners of dogs that pass all 10 items of the CGC test may order an official CGC certificate from the AKC and will receive a qualifying ribbon from the AWC.
