American Kennel Club (AKC) Tests

Puppy Star - Canine Good Citizen (CGC) - Community Canine (CGCA) - Urban Canine (CGCU)

If you are enrolled in an Obedience class with us the Puppy Star, CGC, & CGCA test are included (but optional) with the course.

In addition to the testing we do for the service dogs we also offer AKC testing at our facility or we can come to your facility. Most of our trainers and volunteers are AKC Evaluators and we are happy to do Puppy Star, CGC, CGCA, and CGCU testing for individuals and clubs. We do charge $20 per dog, per test.

Our Public Access & Service Dog Certification Tests

Public Access
We have developed our own curriculum and requirements for Public Access Testing. Our test includes all the fundamentals that other organizations use plus a little extra with obedience, control, distractions, locations, and handler relationship. Some parts of the test; public transit and stairs, for example; are optional based on need and mobility. If you are taking this test without enrolling in our course the test fee is $100.

View a brief overview of the Public Access Test

The Public Access Test is not our Certification Test tho the two can be combined if your dog already has the service dog tasks mastered. The team must pass our Public Access Test before taking our Certification Test or do the tests together.

To pass the Certification potion the dog and handle must be able to demonstrate the trained task in a minimum of 3 locations with various levels of distraction. Passing this test will earn the team the All 4 Paws Training ID Card & Patch. If you were taking courses with us you'll also receive a copy of your graduate papers which lists all your courses and accomplishments. If you are taking this test without enrolling in our courses the test fee is $100.
