Canine Good Citizen test planned

The Kenai Kennel Club will hold a Canine Good Citizen test Monday at 6:30 p.m. at its facility in the C Plaza (next to the Moose Lodge) on the Kenai Spur Highway in Kenai. 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 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 both purebred and mixed breeds. 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 335-2552 and leave a message.
