Canine Good Citizen test Sunday

The Kenai Kennel Club will hold a Canine Good Citizen test Sunday at 3 p.m. at Mile 14.5 of Kalifornsky Beach Road (formerly Robinson's Mini Mall). The test follows a five-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 --purebred and mixed breeds. The test is not a competition and does not require you and your dog perform with precision.

Proof of current shot records must be presented before dogs can enter the building to test.

The program is offered through the American Kennel Club and costs $10.
