Canine Good Citizen Certification

Many dog owners choose Canine Good Citizen training as the first step in training their dogs. The Canine Good Citizen Program lays the foundation for other AKC activities such as obedience, agility, tracking, and performance events.  All dogs, including both purebred and mixed-breed dogs, are welcome to participate. The Canine Good Citizen program promotes responsible pet ownership and good dog manners by recognizing dogs that can pass the following 10-step test: 


  1. Accepting a friendly stranger

  2. Sitting politely while being pet

  3. Appearance and grooming

  4. Walking on a leash

  5. Walking through a crowd

  6. “Sit” and “Down” on command and staying in place

  7. Coming when called

  8. Reacting to another dog

  9. Reacting to distraction

  10. Supervised separation
