K-10 Dog Training certifies Canine Good Citizen

August 26, 2013

K-10 Dog Training of Lewes worked with and tested Tank, a St. Bernard who passed AKC's Canine Good Citizen Test on Aug. 12.

Tank cruised through a 10-point test of the following:

• Accepting a friendly stranger

• Sitting politely for petting

• Appearance and grooming

• Going for a walk

• Walking through a crowd

• Obeying “Sit” and “Down” on command and staying in place

• Coming when called

• Reaction to another dog

• Reaction to distractions

• Supervised separation.

Tank is shown with (l-r) witness Anita Broderick, owner Trish DiMaio and K-10 dog trainer Nancy La Fontaine.
