PenDOG plans Canine Good Citizen test
The Peninsula Dog Obedience Group will hold a Canine Good Citizen test at 7 p.m. March 27 at its facility on Kalifornsky Beach Road. The test follows a six-week course, however, the course is not required to take the test.
The purpose of the CGC test is to ensure that a dog can be a respected member of the community because it is trained and conditioned to act mannerly in the home, public places and in the presence of other dogs. The program is open to all dogs. The test is not a competition and does not require you and your dog perform with precision.
The program is offered through the American Kennel Club. The test costs $10. For more information, call 262-6846 and leave a message.
