AKC Community Canine Test

Does your dog already have it's CGC (Canine Good Citizen) title? If your dog is registered with the AKC and has it's CGC title already, you might consider this test!

The AKC Community Canine (CGCA) is the advanced Canine Good Citizen title that tests the CGC items in a more "real world" scenario. Whereas Canine Good Citizen tests are most often tested in a ring and situations are simulated (e.g., 3 helpers serve as a "crowd"), the AKC Community Canine test is done in real situations including at shows, classes, and in the community.
