The Canine Good Citizen test was started in 1989 by the American Kennel Club as a way of recognizing basic training. The test is open for all breeds and mixes. The test items are meant to be similar to skills that would be useful in every day life (walking through a crowd, stay while the handler walks away, sit for petting).
This class will give structured practice and training to help with the training and handler skills needed to take and pass the Canine Good Citizen test. To read more about the American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizen program, click here.
