Sioux Empire Kennel Club Presents

AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC)

"Responsible Owners, Well-Mannered Dogs"

The CGC program is the gold standard of behavior for dogs in our communities. Pursuing the CGC title allows you to further bond with your dog and produces dogs that are a joy to live with and who interact well with other people and dogs. 

In keeping with that idea, we at the Sioux Empire Kennel Club are proud to present our first CGC test in coordination with our fall Conformation Show on Saturday, October 26, 2019. We will have 4 testing times available. Times will start on the hour, no late entries to the ring to keep the testing fair and moving on time for all. Times will be at 9:00 AM, 10:00 AM, 1:00 PM, 2:00 PM (central time). We will have a clock posted at the ring for the start times. Each testing will have four dogs per test.  Sign up here

Cost of the test is $10.00 (at time of registration) and each test will run for approximately 1 hour. You will be able to sign up and pay online only. Sign up is open and will remain open till October 25, 2019 at 5:00 PM (central). 

Fall Costume contest will also be on Saturday, October 26, 2019
