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.

The 12 Steps:

  1. Accepting A Friendly Stranger

  2. Politely Accepts Petting

  3. Appearance and Grooming

  4. Out For A Walk

  5. Walking Through A Crowd

  6. Sit/Down On Command and Stay In Place

  7. Come When Called

  8. Praise/Interaction

  9. Reaction To A Passing Dog

  10. Reaction To Distractions

  11. Supervised Isolation

  12. Walking Through A Door/Gate
