Canine Good Citizen
Good Citizen (CGC) program, established in 1989, is an American
Kennel Club program to promote responsible dog ownership and
to encourage the training of well-mannered dogs. A dog and handler
team must take a short behavioral evaluation of less than half
an hour; dogs who pass the evaluation earn the Canine Good Citizen
This program is the backbone of other exams, such as
those given for therapy dogs, and is a good starting point for more advanced dog training.
The evaluation consists of ten objectives. All items must be completed
satisfactorily or the team fails. Test items include:
- Accepting a friendly stranger
- Sitting politely for petting
- Allowing basic grooming procedures
- Walking on a loose lead
- Walking through a crowd
- Sitting and lying down on command and staying in place
- Coming when called
- Reacting appropriately to another dog
- Reacting appropriately to distractions
- Calmly enduring supervised separation from the owner

specific problem areas and/or prefer one to one instruction.
