CGN Testing At Ruff Haus!

August 21, 2013 • Author: Ruff Haus

CKC Canine Good Neighbour Program

 Good Dogs Make Good Neighbours…


  • To identify and reward responsible, caring owners and their canine partners throughout Canada.
  • To ensure that one of our most favoured companions, the dog, is accepted as a valued member of our communities right across the country. Canine Good Neighbours can be counted on to present good manners at home, in public places and in the presence of other dogs.


  • The test is non-competitive and allows dog and handler to demonstrate confidence and control in 12 steps. It assesses the handler and dog's relationship, together with the handler's 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 training program embraces both purebred and mixed-breed dogs and is fun, rewarding, and useful. It encourages owners to have a better and richer relationship with their dogs. The program also enhances community awareness of responsible dog ownership and the numerous benefits associated with dog ownership.
  • The Canadian Kennel Club encourages all dog owners to participate in the program, ensuring that our beloved canines are welcome and respected members of our communities.

Ruff Haus will be holding a Canine Good Neighbour Test on Friday, November 29th from 7:00pm-9:00pm for those of you who are interested. The test will take approximately 20 minutes per dog and you will be assigned a time between 7:00pm-9:00pm for your test to be completed. We will also be holding a Practice Test the week before on Friday, November 22nd 7:00pm for those of you who want to warm up before the real deal. Hope to see you out there!
