The Canine Good Citizen Program lays the foundation for other AKC activities such as obedience, agility, tracking, and performance events. as well as performing as a service dog. The Canine Good Citizen test is also the first step required to involve your dog in community work such as hospice, hospital visits, tracking, search and rescue etc. The test also has practical ramifications since it can help protect you from liability claims and also lower your homeowners insurance premiums.
The test consists of the following 10 objectives:
  • Accepting a friendly stranger.

  • Calmly enduring supervised separation from the owner
  • Coming when called.
  • Reacting appropriately to another dog.
  • Reacting appropriately to distractions.
  • Sitting and lying down on command and staying in place.
  • Sitting politely for petting.
