Community Good Canine

The Community Good Canine (CGCA) builds on the manners and behaviors learned for Canine Good Citizen (CGC). If you enjoyed CGC and are ready for a harder challenge for you and your pup this may be what you're looking for. If you are looking to gain AKC Titles before actually competing, this test will give you more experience.

This test evaluates public manners, like how to behave in dog-friendly restaurants, the start of off-leash manners, tests harder versions of basic commands, evaluates how well your dog listens with other dogs around, car safety, and dog-friendly public buildings. To provide a visual of the 10 steps required for passing, we have a link to the AKC video that shows the steps.
