The Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Program is sponsored by the American Kennel Club (AKC) and is open to all dogs, mixed breeds as well as purebreds. The goals of the CGC Program are to (1) teach responsible dog ownership to owners, and (2) provide basic training and good manners to dogs. A key component of the CGC Program is the 10-step CGC Test.
IPOC conducts the CGC Test as an adjunct to its obedience classes at IPOC's training center. Tests are held approximately every eight weeks, in conjunction with class graduation. For test dates and more information, please contact Linda Hartshorn. You may also go the AKC web site at www.AKC.org for a full description of each element of the test.
