The Canine Good Neighbour Test (CGN Test) was developed by the Canadian Kennel Club and is open to all dogs, regardless of breeding. The test requires you and your dog to complete 12 exercises which demonstrate your ability to control your dog and your dog’s ability to demonstrate good manners in everyday situations.
CARO has two distinct areas of competition -
The Original area, which includes Novice, Advanced, Excellent and two levels of Versatility, and Working. The latter is further split into two areas. The only requirement for the original area is that the dog is over six months of age,
Proficiency Test (WPT) which is the second area of the Working competition.
Each level of competition has its own rules and regulations, although the Master General Handbook which relates to the original area of competition, also has some control over the other two levels.
