AKC Community Canine is the next 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.
To earn the AKC Community Canine title, dogs must meet the following two requirements:
1 - Must already have a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) award or title on record at AKC.
2 - Must have an AKC number of one of 3 types (AKC registration number, PAL number, or AKC Canine Partners number). All dogs, including mixed breeds, can get an AKC number. The reason for the AKC number requirement is that this is how we create titles at AKC; we attach the titles to the dog's number. For more information on getting an AKC number, see: http://images.akc.org/cgc/number.pdf
AKC Community Canine is the advanced level of the AKC's Canine Good Citizen Program. Dogs who pass the AKC Community Canine test earn the official AKC Community Canine title that is designated by the letters "CGCA" (Advanced CGC) on the dog's title record.
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.
In this class, students polish skills learned in earlier classes. The handler and dog acquire skills necessary to become a “team” and develop the foundation to move on to more advanced titles or to just have a well behaved pet.
