Looking for something to do with your furry companion after you pass the AKC CGC test?
What about increasing your dog’s level of basic obedience and manners within the community by learning skills for the Canine Good Citizen Advanced title?
This too, is a 10-step test of skills that dogs must pass to earn the official AKC Community Canine (also known as CGCA) title. This is a title that appears on the dog’s title record at AKC. All the dog’s skills on the test are tested on leash.
The goal of AKC Community Canine is to test the dog’s skills in a natural setting. For example, rather than the dog being tested in a ring, in AKC Community Canine, the “walks through a crowd” test item will involve the dog walking through a real crowd at a dog show, on a busy sidewalk, in a therapy dog setting, or at a training club.
Prerequisite: Must have passed the CGC test.
