Canine Good Citizen test planned

Peninsula Dog Obedience Group will hold a Canine Good Citizen test Dec. 4 at 6:30 p.m. The test follows an eight-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 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. For more information, call Annique at 262-1677.
