AKC Canine Good Citizen testing will be offered on October 4th, 2023 at 7:00 pm at Theodore Parker Church in West Roxbury, MA.
The American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test is a title or certification program that evaluates dogs in simulated commonplace interactions and situations. For dogs that take classes at this location, this test takes place in a familiar environment. Dogs that pass the test are considered reliable family and community members and may receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club following testing.
