Prior to having your dog take this test you will have to sign a Responsible Dog Owner Pledge. This is very important to the AKC because they want dog owners to take care of them as best they can and help them remain healthy and active throughout their life. The CGC concept takes into account how important it is that dogs are well behaved. Dog owners who have had their dog pass this test and have signed the pledge agree to always pick up after their dog when they do their business on the sidewalk or in someone else’s yard.
