Canine Good Citizen Testing Task Pack
This series of task cards are based on the AKC's Canine Good Citizen test Any dog is able to take the test and if they pass, they earn a CGC Certificate. With that CGC in place, they can move on to therapy dog certification. There aren't any fancy things that make up the CGC test, just things that any dog with good manners should be able to do. A dog taking the CGC test should be expected to come when called, accept a friendly stranger, and be able to walk nicely on a loose leash. There are 10 specific task cards that make up the Canine Good Citizen pack (4 cards of each task.) There are 45 cards in total:
- 1 Header Card
- Watch/Attention Cards
- Come/Here Cards
- Down Cards
- Drop it or Give Cards
- Loose Leash Walking Cards
- Leave It Cards
- Off Cards
- Go to your Place Cards
- Settle Cards
- Sit Cards
- Stay Cards
- Wait Cards
- Play!! Cards

How to use the Train 'Em Tasks system:
The task cards are to be used with the Train 'Em Tasks linen grab bags. To make your daily training game plan, pull a couple of task cards from your grab bag and train those exercises. For obedience I might pull 3 - 5 cards and work each exercise for 5 - 10 minutes depending on the task. For agility, I will pull two task cards and pick drills, sequences, or a course that will work those tasks. After you have completed your tasks, you can put them back into your bag or set them side until your bag is empty. That way, you can make sure you and your dog work all of your tasks (I personally have a separate bag for spent tasks.)
