The first animal care professional that many dog owners know and trust is the veterinarian. As a growing number of veterinarians are recognizing the benefits of early training for dogs, there is an increase in CGC and AKC STAR Puppy classes in veterinary settings.

Dr. Judy Little of the Osceola Veterinary Clinic (Iowa) has arranged for AKC CGC Evaluator Nancy Crabtree to provide CGC classes and testing at the clinic.

After six weeks of CGC classes, these proud teams passed the CGC test.

Canine Good Citizen (CGC)

This program is recognized as the gold standard for dog behavior. In CGC, dogs who pass the 10 step CGC test can earn a certificate and/or the official AKC CGC title. Dogs with the CGC title have the suffix, "CGC" after their names.
