During a Canine Good Neighbour exam, handlers and their dogs are evaluated on their ability to perform a 12 step test of basic exercises as well as their ability to demonstrate good manners in everyday situations. The test is non-competitive and allows handlers and their dogs to demonstrate their confidence, ability to work together, and the handler’s ability to control the dog.
Each dog and handler team performs the 12 steps in front of a certified judge, one team at a time. Once the total number of teams is known, or limit is reached, participants will receive a confirmation email with a confirmed time slot.
