    This is the test you must pass to earn the AKC Canine Good Citizen certificate. The ten test items include meeting friendly people politely and accepting petting and grooming; walking nicely on a loose leash alone and through a crowd; demonstrating Sit, Down, Stay, and Come; meeting another leashed dog; remaining calm during sight and sound distractions; and being separated from out-of-sight handler for 3 minutes. See www.akc.org/events/cgc/training_testing.cfm for details.

    The pass/fail CGC test is the gateway to many therapy dog programs and is accepted by some landlords and insurance companies as an indication of your dog's social skills and that you and your sidekick work well together as a team.
