Reserve a spot for the CKC Canine Good Neighbour Program


$25 CKC Canine Good Neighbour Program

The Canine Good Neighbour Program is a 12-step test, that when completed successfully, will 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.

I understand that I am reserving a spot for my dog to take the CKC Canine Good Neighbour Program test at the Spring Canadian Pet Expo at the International Centre in Mississauga on the date & time selected above. I will be at the CKC Canine Good Neighbour Program booth 10 min prior to my start time. I also understand that the test fee does not include entrance price to the Canadian Pet Expo, and I must purchase a ticket at the door or online prior to entering the event.
