and AKC Canine Good Citizens
by Nancy Bowman
Pekes make good Therapy Dogs and get to go to nursing homes. They
must all pass an AKC Canine Good Citizen’s (CGC) Test. I am an evaluator
for the CGC Test through the AKC. I would be glad to evaluate any
Pekingese that would like to go to a nursing home or visit the Veteran’s
Hospital. You can contact me at:
Do you have more pictures of your dog than any other family member?
Do you refer to your dogs as 4 legged children? Did you purchase a
king-size bed so your dog can sleep comfortably too? When shopping for a
new car do you make sure that you will have enough room for the dog? If
you answered yes to any of these questions then you might just be a dog
lover. The Pekingese Club of America is full of others just like you.
Pekingese in obedience get to go visit nursing homes and the Veteran’s
Hospital and allow the patients to interact with them. Therapy dogs are
proven to have a positive impact on the well-being of patients. Pekes
also get to be in parades and interact with crowds of children that come
out to see the parades.
If you are a Pekingese lover and would
like more information about The Pekingese Club of America, please get in
touch with any member of the Board
