Canine Good Citizen Testing
A 10 station test to see how well behaved your dog is! You must direct your dog to sit, lie down, walk politely on leash, stay in place, come when called, calmly walk by another dog, and stay with a friendly evaluator while you go out of sight. You can find more information on the test items here.
