The CGC Progran is designed to (1) Teach responsible dog ownership to owners and (2) certify dogs that have the training and behaviors needed to be reliable, well-behaved members of their families and communities. The purpose of the program is to ensure that our favorite companion, the dog, can be a respected member of the community because it has been trained to be well behaved in the home, in public places, and in the presence of other dogs. The CGC Program WELCOMES both purebred and mixed breed dogs. Dogs that pass all 10 items of the CGC test, are listed in the CGC records at the American Kennel Club both mixed breeds and purebreds. They will receive an official Certificate from AKC. The CGC test is noncompetitive and dogs are not required to perform with the same precision required in formal obedience. There is No age limit for taking the CGC test All dogs are welcome to participate when they are old enough to have completed all Vaccinations. Dogs with disabilities such as the loss of a leg, deafness, or blindness in one eye are welcome in the CGC test they must perform all 10 items to pass the test however you may use hand signals, gestures or other cues to which the dog has been trained to respond. Handlers with disabilities are also encouraged to participate in the CGC test. CGC Certification can also be used for advertising or pedigrees it is a Great Award for you and your companion to hold knowing they are well trained in obedience and under the control of you the handler.
