CGC Test Item Descriptions

Collar, Leashes and Equipment

All tests must be performed on leash. Dogs should wear well-fitting buckle or slip collars (including martingales) made of leather or fabric. They may also wear body harnesses for the CGC test. Body harnesses should not restrict the movement of the dog. Special training equipment such as pinch collars, electronic collars, and head collars are not permitted. The leash should be made of either leather or fabric. Retractable leashes may not be used in the CGC test.
