The Canine Good Citizen title was designed by the AKC to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. It focuses on 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. The skills tested include loose leash walking, stay, polite greeting, walking through a crowd, grooming, a three minute supervised separation, recall, and working through distractions. Visit the AKC website to learn more about the CGC.
Those who wish to participate in our test can register through our website or at the door. On-site registration opens at 6:30pm and closes at 7:30pm. The cost is $7 for TCOTC members and $15 for non-members. If your dog passes the test you will be given the necessary information to claim your new AKC title.
