Canine Good Citizen Level 4

After a good month and a half off for a much needed break, Divinity is back to training class. This past week we started Level 4 of the Canine Good Citizen class which is preparation for the actual test. The Canine Good Citizen test consists of the following tasks:

  • Test 1: Accepting a friendly stranger
  • Test 2: Sitting politely for petting
  • Test 3: Appearance and grooming
  • Test 4: Out for a walk (walking on a loose lead)
  • Test 5: Walking through a crowd
  • Test 6: Sit and down on command and Staying in place
  • Test 7: Coming when called
  • Test 8: Reaction to another dog
  • Test 9: Reaction to distraction
  • Test 10: Supervised separation

A complete explanation of the test is available on the AKC website.

The only area Divinity had a problem with was Test 6, the sit, down, and stay in place commands. These were the same tasks she had problems with in Level 4, but we’ll be OK with a bit of “home-schooling.”
