The American Kennel Club is pleased to share the news that in some regions, NationwideInsurance is issuing homeowners insurance to owners of breeds previously prohibited by the company, providing the dog passes the AKC Canine Good Citizen test.

Nationwide has stated: "Nationwide has begun to allow the owners of certain prohibited dog breeds to attain homeowners insurance if they provide an original copy of a certificate demonstrating successful completion of the AKC Canine Good Citizen program. This provision is currently available in limited areas and provided the applicant meets traditional underwriting requirements. The Canine Good Citizen program demonstrates responsible dog ownership and we certainly hope this change will prove successful."

Dog owners should note that at this time, only certain specified Nationwide regions are participating. The AKC Canine Good Citizen Program is a certification program that is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. All dogs who pass the 10-step CGC test may receive a certificate from the AKC. The program continues to gain acceptance worldwide as the standard for welltrained dogs and responsible dog ownership.
