If the test is scheduled for a Saturday or Sunday, the CGC registration is between 8:30 and 9 a.m. The actual testing begins at 9 a.m. The test will run as long as we have participants waiting.

The fee for the test is $10.00. Please bring proof of your dog's rabies vaccination and your dog's brush. Visit the AKC web site
