Canine Good Citizen

K9 Good CitizenAfter you’ve successfully graduated from the beginner obedience class, your next step is the Eukanuba Canine Good Citizen™ Test.

The Eukanuba Canine Good Citizen™ Test is a certification program that tests dogs in simulated everyday situations in a relaxed atmosphere. It identifies and rewards dogs that have the training and demeanour to be reliable family members as well as good-standing community members. It is open to all purebred and crossbred dogs .

The purpose of the Eukanuba Canine Good Citizen™ Test is to ensure that our favourite companion, the dog, can be a respected member of the community because it is trained and conditioned to act with good manners in the home, in public, and in the presence of other dogs

Eukanuba Canine Good Citizen™ training is fun and useful. Through it, you and your dog will establish a closer bond and your dog will have the added benefit of knowing how to please you. The test of your dog’s manners and training is not a competition and does NOT require that you and your dog perform with precision.

Who can participate?

  • All dogs over the age of 12 months of age.
  • Membership of the NZKC or member Club is not needed.

To obtain Eukanuba Canine Good Citizen™ Certificates, dogs must pass all tests set in each grade before attempting the next advanced up. Certificates are available from the New Zealand Kennel Club posted to the assessing club. Dogs will be registered onto a database.

More information can be found on the NZKC site here:  http://www.nzkc.org.nz/goodcitizen.html
