AKC Community Canine
( C.G.C Level 2)
What is AKC Community
AKC Community Canine is the advanced level of AKC's Canine
Good Citizen (CGC) program.
As with CGC, AKC Community Canine has a 10-step test of
skills that dogs must pass to earn the official AKC Community Canine title.
This is a title that appears on the dog's title record at AKC.
All skills on the test are tested on leash. The AKC
Community Canine (CGCA) test may be done in a class, at shows, in pet stores or
in the community. When the test is administered in community settings such as
at a business or special event, evaluators must have the necessary approval of
the business owners, etc.
While Canine Good Citizen tests are simulations of real
world skills, (e.g., dog/handler walks through a "crowd" of
evaluators in a ring), 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.
