Canine Good Citizen
HOTC provides training and testing for the Canine Good Citizen (CGC) title, which
is sponsored by the American Kennel Club. The tests for the CGC title show that
your dog is healthy and well-kept, your dog can be examined and groomed easily by
other people, accepts other people and their dogs, can walk on a leash without pulling
or lunging, can sit and lie down on command, can remain in place (either sitting
or laying down), can be left alone, and tolerates distracting situations. The CGC
title signifies that a dog is a well mannered member of the community.
