EQUIPMENT YOU WILL NEED TO BRING ALONG FOR YOUR TEST:
When it comes time to take your CGC test, there are a few things you’ll need to bring with you. 


  1. First, the CGC test must be performed on leash. Just note that special training collars such as pinch collars, head halters, and electronic collars are not allowed.
  2. As an option, a Body harnesses can be used for the CGC test, but the Evaluator will check to make sure it won’t completely restrict your dog’s movement. This is so if your dog tries to jump or pull, it can (but won’t, because of the great CGC training you’ve done). 
  3. Also, be sure to bring a brush or comb for the grooming skill.


RESPONSIBLE DOG OWNER'S PLEDGE

The first step in passing the CGC test is actually all about you, the human! When you meet your evaluator to take the CGC test, you’ll read and sign the CGC Responsible Dog Owner’s Pledge before your dog starts any of her activities. This promise shows that you’re committed to being the best dog owner you can be by always providing for your dog’s health and safety, ensuring that your dog never infringes on the rights of others, and doing everything within your power to ensure your dog is a great companion, community member, and friend.

CANINE GOOD CITIZEN TEST REQUIREMENTS


As you go through the skills, the Evaluator may use more formal language (it is a test after all). Below are how Evaluators commonly refer to the skills in the testing environment – but don’t worry about the more formal language. They’re still the same 10 behaviors you’ve been working on together, just in a uniform way so CGC dogs from California to Connecticut all know they’re being evaluated in the same fashion.
Once you pass your CGC test, you can send in the paperwork provided by your Evaluator to the AKC for your official title and certification!
