I think the idea behind this is a good one: that people be responsible for their dogs and not neglect the social aspect of the care of the dog.
The implementation part sounds like a boondoggle.
Why not just require a CGC test completion along with a rabies vax for a license, in jurisdictions that license? The CGC test is actually a pretty good tool, and I was under the impression that it was developed for just this purpose: to let people know that a dog was not a menace to society.
Not all dogs will require training classes to pass the CGC, and some will require several obedience courses. It leaves it up to the owner how much he/she wants to do formal training, but it addresses the end result: that your dog have decent enough manners to pass that fairly simple test.
And with the revenue they get from that, the AKC could finally stop licensing puppymills!
Okay, now I'm just dreaming. LOL
