New Canine Good Citizens

On November 25, 2009, the the American Kennel Club’s (AKC) Canine Good Citizen (CGC) evaluation was conducted at the Humane Society of Huron Valley of Ann Arbor, Michigan. Toni O’Farrell and her dog “Bear”, a Havense and Philip Ewing and his dog “Lola”, a Cattle Dog. The CGC evaluation is a ten step evaluation which tests a dog team’s ability to show control and obedience in real world situations without the use of food treats or other motivators. In order to be considered a “Canine Good Citizen” a dog team must pass all ten stations which include: Accepting the approach of a friendly stranger, Sitting politely for petting, Willingness to be handled and groomed, Walking on a loose lead, Walking through a crowd, Sitting, Laying Down, Staying in Place, Coming when called, Behaving politely around other dogs, Remaining calm amongst common noise and visual distractions, and Remaining calm while separated from their owner.
