Canine Good Citizen (CGC)

The Canine Good Citizen Program (CGC) is a certification program that is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. It is a two-part program (10-step test) that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. The CGC is just one way to show everyone that our dogs are exemplary members of the community, and to strengthen the bond between pittie and parent.

We love to post on our website, current pictures of owners and their pups that have recently passed the CGC so please email with a quality picture of you and your dog (include names of both) and a copy of the CGC-pass form and/or certificate you received.
