The “Canine Good Citizen” Award is a certificate bestowed by the American Kennel Club to any dog that passes a formal test that involves basic Obedience and social behaviors. Working as a team with their human companions, dogs of all shapes and sizes have passed the AKC Canine Good Citizen® test and are now recognized as valued members of their communities.
In honor of Pit Bull Awareness Month we will be offering free CGC test on Saturday October 26th at 1pm. Tests generally take 30 minutes. Interested in signing up you and your dog? Register online at www.mspca.org/bostonreg.
Dogs must be at least one year old to take the test and must be handled by their owners during the test.
