Canine Good Citizen

The AKC’s Canine Good Citizen® (CGC) Program was started in 1989 and it is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. The Canine Good Citizen Program is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs who pass the 10-step CGC test may receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club.

During this course, we will focus on practicing and refining the 10 CGC test items. 

The actual CGC test will be given during the 6th class.

Review the test items here:



  • Must be at least 6 months old

  • Must have completed at least one of the following classes or packages:

    • Puppy Class Part 2, Intermediate Obedience, Puppy Day School Package of 20 days, or Private Lesson Package of 3


  • The course fee is $240, which includes the testing fee.

  • The fee for taking the test only is $30

  • The classes are one hour long and run for 6 consecutive weeks (unless otherwise noted due to a holiday).

  • Proof of Rabies, DHLLPP/DA2P, and Bordetella.

  • Classes are limited to 8 dogs to ensure personalized attention.
