What is CGC?
CGC is a ten-skill training program that's open to all dogs-purebred and mixed breed-that focuses on teaching the basics of good manners and obedience, instilling the values of responsible ownership, and strengthening the bond between you and your dog at home and out in the community.
After mastering the ten skills, passing the CGC test together, and taking the Responsible Dog Ownership pledge, you and your pup will join the proud ranks of over 1 million dogs who entered their Canine Good Citizen award- accomplishment that's definitely worthy of extra belly rubs!
The Benefits of Canine Good Citizen
For starters, we know it's up to us as humans to lead the charge and promote responsible pet ownership, so our skills are based on learning how to better understand and communicate with each other. Through the hours of training and practive, you'll deepen your bond and become a more connected paid. This bond allows you to become the best companions for each other, and great neighbors to those around oyu. It's a win, win, win!
Beyond the bonding, there practical benefits to CGC training, too. Not only will you and your dog understand the basics of dog training, and master skills like sit, down, and stay, but you'll know your dog will be able to handle herself with grace in a crowd and be a welcomed client at the vet or groomer. The CGC title is also a prerequisite for many therapy dog certifications, as well as a great introduction to more advanced dog sports and activities. Some homeowners' insurance programs even offer discounts for CGC dogs, and an increasing number of apartments and condos see CGC awards as a major bonus for becoming a resident.
