What is Canine Good Citizen™?

The AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy is an exciting program designed to get dog owners and their puppies off to a good start.


The AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program is an incentive program for loving dog owners who have taken the time to take their puppies through a basic training class.



At the AKC, they believe that all dogs can be good dogs, and all owners can be great owners: all it takes is a little bit of training, lots of love, and of course, plenty of praise along the way. 

That’s why they created the Canine Good Citizen™ (CGC) program: a two-part course designed to help you and your dog be the best you can be–together.


Not only does CGC training create long-lasting trust between you and your pup, but also ensures you’ll be good neighbors and friends to everyone around you—and, if you’re interested in going beyond the basics, CGC also lays the foundation for other AKC sports and activities like obedience, agility, tracking, and performance events.
