AKC Community Canine is the third and most advanced level of the Canine Good Citizen Program. In AKC Community Canine, dogs can earn the CGCA (Advanced CGC) title. 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, at a training club or in a local park. To earn the AKC Community Canine (CGCA) title, your dog must have: 1. A Canine Good Citizen test on record at AKC, CGC is a prerequisite for the AKC Community Canine (CGCA) title. 2. An AKC number, or PAL number, or AKC Canine Partners number. We attach titles to a dog’s number at AKC. All dogs, including mixed breeds, can earn titles. The test will be held on the last day of class, and a material fee of $20 is payable to the instructor. The first class is without dogs, and meets in classroom 13 at Gateway. Tuition includes one person and one dog.
