Canine Good Citizen Classes and Titles

Canine Good Citizen Classes

We endorse the American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizen program as a measure of good manners in companion and competition dogs. More than 700,000 dogs have passed the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen exam nationwide. It is an important milestone in successful therapy and service dog training.
