"K9" & Protection Academy

Canine Good Citizen –


Canine Good Citizen (also knows as CGC) training is based on the KUSA tests with bronze, silver and gold levels.

Dogs coming in for this training can be of any age, CGC is a prerequisite for dogs wanting to do any form of protection training with us.

The KUSA test consists of 13 topics.  https://www.kusa.co.za/index.php/kusa-initiatives/canine-good-citizen-test/691-kusa-c-g-c-bronze-level

Topics covered are; walk nicely on a lead; sit, lie down, stand for grooming, stay, politely meet a stranger with a strange dog, wait – don’t push past me at doors plus several others.  Dogs are also encouraged to react appropriately to distractions such as bicycles, children playing, babies in prams etc.

The in-house training does not include the KUSA test at a show unless specifically requested.
