Canine Good Neighbour Program



The purpose of the Canine Good Neighbour Program test is to ensure that one of our most favoured companions, the dog, is accepted as a valued member of the community.  Canine Good Neighbours can be counted on to present good manners at home, in public places and in the presence of other dogs.

The program embraces both purebred and mixed-breed dogs and has been created to assist canine owners combat anti-dog sentiments which often target dogs as a whole.  Additionally, the program enhances community awareness of responsible dog ownership and the benefits associated with dog ownership.

Canine Good Neighbour training is fun, rewarding, and useful.  It can enable owners to achieve a better relationship with their dogs.

The test is not a competition calling for precision performance by the handler and dog.  Rather, it assesses the handler and dogís relationship together with the handlerís ability to control the dog.

Dogs are evaluated on their ability to perform basic exercises as well as their ability to demonstrate good manners in everyday situations.

The Canadian Kennel Club encourages all dog owners to participate in this program, thereby ensuring that our beloved canines are welcomed and respected members of our communities.

At K-9 Country Inn our course will explain the exercises, what the judge will be looking for iduring the evaulation and preparing you for the test.

In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi-human.  The point of it is to  open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog.
