Canine Good Citizen

$25 per test


CGC is a certification program that 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 will receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club.

Whether your dog was trained with us at American Canine Academy, or somewhere else, we can administer the test to see if your dog is a canine good citizen!

1. Accepting a friendly stranger
