The Canine Good Citizen Test offered through the AKC is designed to test whether your dog has the skills necessary to be a good canine citizen in commmon interactions with you, other people, groomers and the public at-large.
With the advent of the Canine Good Citizen, Community Canine and Urban Canine Tests, the AKC provided a roadmap for dog owners to ensure particular skills are mastered by them and their dogs. Doing so will ensure their dog is the best canine companion they can be! In addition to developing crucial skills, training for and passing these tests means many dog owners may qualify for a reduction of their homeowners and renters insurance policies! Also, AKC now issues titles for passing these tests. Which means your dog can go out into the world with an impressive alphabet soup after their name!
Our Canine Good Citizen Prep courses are designed to help you and your dog prep for these tests, developing the skills you need to pass and to be successful in everyday life. Be sure to check them out!
