Can he behave mannerly around new dogs, in a crowd of people, or when someone wants to pet him?  Would you like him to?  The AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Program is a certification program designed to reward dogs who show good manners at home and in the community.  The Canine Good Citizen class meets for 6 consecutive weeks at a cost of $170.00, followed by a final week dedicated to administering the certification test to interested participants.  Dogs entering this class must display a working knowledge of sit, down, stay, come when called, settle down, and leave it.
