D5DOG is the San Francisco District 5 Dog Owners & Guardians group. We are a neighborhood organization of dog guardians and dog lovers who care deeply about the health and welfare of our canine companions as well as the safety and vitality of our local parks, neighborhoods and community. D5DOG members organize regular monthly clean-ups in parks within District 5. We also host seminars on canine health & welfare, dog training classes and other fun and informative events that promote responsible dog guardianship.
Started in 1989, the American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizen is a certification program that is designed to reward dogs that have good manners at home and within the community. The Canine Good Citizen Program is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet owner/guardianship for handlers and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs that pass the 10-step CGC test may receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club. In a little over one decade, the Canine Good Citizen Program has begun to have an extremely positive impact in many of our communities. This is a program that can help us assure that the dogs we love will always be welcomed and well-respected members of our communities.
