Canine Good Citizen

The Canine Good Citizen evaluation is designed to test for basic behaviors and manners that are desirable in your dog.  It is also a prerequisite for many advanced activities such as Therapy dog, entering some competitions, and enrolling in advanced classes. Passing the test lets everyone know that your dog has manners and will mind. 

The Canine Good Citizen test is a fun way to introduce your dog to competition and working in a structured public event that is exciting and sometimes chaotic. The test doesn't take long and can add a title to your dog if they are registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC). The AKC awards the title to their PALS members also.

RolloverU holds a CGC Test the 4th Sunday of every month. You can register online for the month that best fits your schedule. 

The AKC created a video to show the expectations for the Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test.
