AKC Canine Good Citizen

What is a Canine Good Citizen?

At the AKC, they believe that all dogs can be good dogs, and all owners can be great owners, all it takes is a little bit of training, lots of love, and of course, plenty of praise along the way.


That’s why they created the Canine Good Citizen™ (CGC) program: an expert-made training program designed to help you and your dog be the best you can be–together.


Canine Good Citizen is a 10-skill test that teaches good manners to dogs and responsible dog ownership to their owners. The 10 test items on the CGC test are practical, functional behaviors that every dog should have to be welcomed in the community.

BMK9 now has an American Kennel Club (AKC) certified evaluator for the Canine Good Citizen (GCU)!

If you have any questions, all of the above information and more can be found at the American Kennel Club website below or you can call and speak with Andrew about how to schedule and get your dog certified as a Canine Good Citizen!

The test will be $30.00(plus tax) and takes about an hour to complete.
