AKC Community Canine
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.
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.
AKC Community Canines (Advanced CGC)
To participate your dog must have their CGC and a registration number from AKC. All mixed breeds or dogs that are not already registered can get a PAL number through AKC to participate. For more information on getting an AKC number, see: http://images.akc.org/cgc/number.pdf
This is a 3 week class - 2 weeks of prep for the test and week 3 is the test. Classes are held on the Scott-Fox Training Center and real world locations and are taught by Judy Peterson.
