Get a Free CGC Test Kit!

We don’t want you to miss out — if you are hosting a dog event in 2014, we encourage you to register it as an AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Day event. Although AKC RDO Days used to be celebrated in September only, an event can now be held at any time during the year. Shows, trials, CGC tests, dog fairs and other events are great ways to educate the public about the importance of responsible dog ownership. For every AKC RDO Day registered, we’re sending out a free box of giveaways and goodies to hand out to visitors and a free Canine Good Citizen test kit ($20 value) in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the CGC program. We’re down to our last 50 kits, so register soon. Here’s how:
