About the CGC Test

Please email kaaren@treasurecoastkennelclub.org or call 772-878-2211 if you are interested in participating in any of the CGC Tests.

The Canine Good Citizen Test of your dog's manners and training is not a competition and does not require the owner/handler and dog to perform with precision. Handlers may talk to their dogs throughout the test but cannot offer food or a toy.

 

The Canine Good Citizen Test is open to purebred dogs and non-purebred dogs, both registered and unregistered that are 6 months old or older. At check-in, the owner or handler must present a current rabies certificate. All tests must be performed on a leash. Dogs should wear well-fitted buckle or slip collars made of either leather, fabric, or chain. Special training collars or devices (example: pinch collars or head halters) are not permitted. The leash should be made leather or fabric.

 

Dogs must be healthy, in good condition and clean to pass the test. A dog whose appearance has been noticeably affected by a medical condition may pass the test, provided at check-in the owner presents a letter of explanation and release from the dog's veterinarian.

 

At the Treasure Coast Kennel Club we support this program and we hold tests at our April Show and periodically at the club house for more info please contact us at 772-878-2211 or Kaaren@treasurecoastkennelclub.org.
