Canine Good Citizen tests provide an opportunity for Cavalier owners to demonstrate the versatility of their dogs. In conformity with the Breed standard, they show that the dog is fearless and sporting in character, while gentle and affectionate. Cavaliers must demonstrate that they are gay, friendly, and non-aggressive, with no tendency towards nervousness or shyness. Bad temper, shyness, and meanness are not to be tolerated. These characteristics are tested by the CGC tests.
CGC and Advanced CGC Tests
Successful participants are eligible to order a certificate from AKC or may request an AKC title that will appear on AKC title records and may be listed as a suffix after the dog's name. The schedule of the CGC Tests will be published with other Show events, and exhibitors will receive a notice of the running order for dogs before the day of the test.
