The certification process begins with an initial meeting with one of our staff Evaluators. A  test will be given to evaluate dog and handler as a team. A minimum of four separate visitations wil be made to medical facilites so our Evaluators can observe the dog and handler .
 
In additon to the above, each dog is required to pass the Canine Good Citizenship (CGC) Test.
CGC is a 10 step certification program designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community.
All dogs that pass the CGC test will be awarded a certificate from the American Kennel Club (AKC).
For more information on the 10 step test please see tab marked CGC.
